Rosenthal Highlights presented at Maison et Objet 2019
The spectrum of products that Rosenthal is presenting at the Maison et Objét design show ranges from the most extravagant to the most opulent. Bienvenue à Paris!
Rosenthal Cilla Marea
Inspired by the rugged beauty of the sea and those who brave its waves, Italian tattoo artist Pietro Sedda and his label The Saint Mariner created a series of stunning designs for Rosenthal in watercolour and ink. The combination of his exceptional, light brush strokes and archaic figures creates a unique aesthetic, merging dream with reality, the figurative with the floral and the graphic with the metaphorical. The gift collection includes four designs that appear on plates, travel mugs, cups and bowls, as well as a limited-edition vase featuring an additional design. The unusual gold titanium coating on the espresso and tea cups lends them an extra special quality.
Rosenthal Zaha Hadid
The Lapp vase collection is characterized by tear-drop-shaped openings and an elaborate
combination of matte and shiny surfaces. Flower arrangements can be both classic and highly
playful, with flowers leaning out to the side. Where the Weave series embodies the perfect
interplay of intertwining flowing lines matching Hadid’s handwriting exactly, the Strip collection
has a sculptural feel to it. A dynamic vase body emerges from a rigid square that functions as a
base, reaching skyward like a tall building before coming to rest in a perfect round opening.
Cairn Young has designed the Phi collection for Rosenthal featuring five vases with striking surface structures: Freeze, Spindrift, City, Manhattan and Snow. Complex, spiral-shaped geometric patterns cover the white porcelain bodies, transforming them into sculptural objects with an innovative 3D effect. Triangles become frosty blossoms, crystals become snowflakes and cubic shapes form a skyline. The effect made by light refracting on the vase surfaces adds a poetic element. These items are beautiful both as standalone pieces or arranged as a decorative vase ensemble.
Rosenthal meets Versace Euphoria
Rosenthal meets Versace welcomes its newest addition – the limited edition Euphoria vases, sophistically crafted from the finest porcelain. Inspired by the idea of a rotating mythical Medusa head, each of the vases represents a different pace of movement: slow – in which the Gorgon’s facial features are more prominent, fast –accentuating her snake-like hair and the fastest – with horizontal lines that emulate accelerated motion. The vases are available in white and gold as a three
