Travel in style through Asia: Villeroy & Boch creates tableware with an exclusive design for the Eastern & Ori-ental Express

Press Release   •   Jan 27, 2016 08:13 GMT

The Eastern & Oriental Express is yet another exclusive reference added to the list of establishments serving its guests on Villeroy & Boch tableware. It offers unforgettable moments for sophisticated train travellers on their way through Singapore, Malaysia and Thailand.

The restaurants on the Eastern & Oriental Express are equipped with customised tableware by Villeroy & Boch adorned with a golden application displaying the logo of the luxury train. The décor has been applied to Premium Bone Porcelain tableware from the successful Stella Hotel collection with its elegant, classical form and extremely delicate appearance. The travel experience of the Eastern & Oriental Express is rendered unforgettable not only by the exotic routes the train takes but especially by the uniquely high-quality facilities and the culinary offerings on board.

The exclusive décor of the Eastern & Oriental Express

The fine pine-green and gold décor picks up on the colours of the Eastern & Oriental Express and thus creates a unified design aesthetic characterised by the highest standards of originality and exclusivity.

The dinner plates, cups and saucers are decorated with a delicate green and gold border and feature the image of a tiger, an integral element of the Eastern & Oriental Express logo representing power, strength and dynamism. The logo itself with the initials E&O is also displayed on the left rim of the dinner plates.

At lunchtime and in the evening, meals featuring exclusive, seasonal specialities are available in the two restaurant cars. Breakfast is served on the fine porcelain directly in the cabins. Light snacks and drinks may be enjoyed from 7am in the open observation car at the end of the train.
