The Bauhaus anniversary year with the design classic TAC by Rosenthal
TAC/Design: Walter Gropius
The 1969 TAC collection, named after Gropius' Boston office "The Architects Collaborative", is one of the world's most successful porcelain series. Not only was it created by teamwork according to Bauhaus tradition but also its reduced formal idiom, with the plain hemisphere for the teapot and cup and the play with triangles and squares, suggests the Bauhaus style to this day. Moreover, the material, which is highest quality, light, transparent porcelain, contributes to make this classic service give an unparalleled, timeless, poetic impression.
