A slate look, copper accents and bold contrasts – the successful Manufacture Rock collection continues to grow

High-quality objects made from natural materials with striking surfaces shaped by elaborate craftsmanship are extremely popular in current interior design trends. Villeroy & Boch recognised this strong international trend two years ago and embraced it in its extensive Manufacture Rock tableware collection. Thanks to its overwhelming success, more products will be joining the range in 2020 to spread stylish joy. New items include coffee and espresso cups with saucers, a mug as well as square and rectangular plates and platters in two different sizes. Moreover, there is a new dip bowl that is also available as a four-piece set consisting of three bowls and a platter. New Manufacture Rock Glow products add elegant copper accents: saucers in three sizes, a bowl and a flat bowl will be available as of 2020.

Authentic slate look

The design of the Manufacture Rock collection embraces the typical slate look in black, coloured-through Premium Porcelain. Recreated on a fine relief with a touch of glaze, the characteristic layers of rock give the crockery a distinctly authentic look and feel. Manufacture Rock Blanc creates a vibrant effect in brilliant white, an unusual colour for a slate look. Each colour version has a distinctive effect, but they create contrasting black and white compositions when mixed and matched with each other. Combining individual pieces with the hand-painted Manufacture Rouge and Manufacture Gris ranges or the elegant Manufacture Glow with a vibrant copper look brightens any table setting with attractive dashes of colour. Featuring a surface material whose appearance is almost identical to real slate, Manufacture Rock has all the advantages of ceramic: the crockery is dishwasher-safe and microwave-safe.

Manufacture Rock Glow – Powerful yet elegant

Copper – fashion, interior design and product design use subtle shiny copper shades to add an expressive touch. The new Manufacture Rock Glow décor combines the slate-looking tactile surface of Manufacture Rock products with the elegant copper colour of Manufacture Glow. Five items are available: saucers in three sizes and flat bowls. The rims and outer surfaces have a slate look, while the interior shines in a striking copper shade. As the softly shimmering CoverSeal® surface does not contain any metal, the products are suitable for the dishwasher and microwave.

Delicate copper-coloured effects

Glasses and cutlery from the tableware collection also add elegant copper detailing to table settings: the elegant crystal glasses for white wine, red wine and champagne feature a soft copper colour gradient along the delicate stem, which flows seamlessly into the bowl. The red shimmering metal of the matching streamlined Manufacture cutlery has a fine matt finish. Thanks to their elegant look, the Manufacture glasses and cutlery create an exciting contrast to the rough slate texture of the porcelain.
