Founded in 1879, Rosenthal is one of the world’s leading producers of porcelain tableware and items for the home.
Creating timeless collections throughout its 140-year history, Rosenthal has also collaborated on acclaimed edition pieces with leading artists and designers including Salvador Dali, Andy Warhol, Walter Gropius and Werner Panton.
Zaha Hadid Design’s new collections for Rosenthal reinterpret the relationships inherent throughout the studio’s architecture.
The Lapp collection comprises a family of vases of different sizes in varying combinations of matt and gloss ceramic finishes. Informed by the motion of a liquid droplets flowing along a solid surface, the design creates openings and voids that allow for many different flower arrangements at the top – as well as on the sides – of the vase.
Defined by the fluid lines of Zaha Hadid’s sketching hand, the Weave vases incorporate delicate strokes that interweave and diverge to express their interplay of fluidity and symmetry.
The Strip collection includes three sculptural vases and two bowls of different sizes. A sequence of vertical strips with rhythmical offsets, the Strip collection transitions their square base into a circular top edge. Metallic highlights between each strip generate an intricacy within each design.
