Rosenthal TAC Stripes 2.0
The Stripes 2.0 line design is an homage to Walter Gropius, reinterpreted with a contemporary feel. His hand-drawn design appears more linear because there are bigger gaps between the individual lines. A new modern, urban and simplistic design is brought to the classic TAC in mix and match, with matte and shiny surfaces, shimmering metallic parts and coloured glass. The design is supplemented by colour and façade elements taken from the Rosenthal am Rothbühl porcelain factory, which was designed by Walter Gropius. For this, the Rosenthal Creative Centre took photographs of pieces of the legendary exposed concrete butterfly roof and placed them on a wall plate with a 3D effect. The collection’s accentuated red tone, which is depicted on the glass plates and as a dot on the porcelain, was inspired by a railing at the factory. The Stripes 2.0 design draws on historical references, a building of immense appeal and a unique mix of structures and materials that is characteristic of Bauhaus to capture the essence of the Bauhaus movement and its founder Walter Gropius and create an amalgamated statement of clarity and existence for the here and now.
