125 years Made in Germany (part 4) - these are the brands!

Until 4 March 2013, the exhibition “German Design Standards - From Bauhaus to Globalisation” narrates the success story of German design and describes it by numerous exhibits. In cooperation with the Neue Sammlung - The International Design Museum Munich, the exhibition in Hong Kong presents selected winning works of the red dot design award, but also iconic products which have become “German Design Standards”. In the fourth part of this series, further masters of German design will be presented.

Centuries porcelain concept, KAHLA/Thüringen Porzellan GmbH

Old and new, handicraft and innovative manufacture merge together in the Centuries porcelain concept. With four design lines, reminders of past ages, it offers a great diversity of programmes. Newly interpreted reliefs on this tableware give way to a moving surface of great haptic attraction. Subtle shadow reliefs throw – according to viewing angle – ever new patterns. And fine recesses can be felt with the fingers and emphasise the high standard of workmanship of the porcelain.

Design: Hans (Nick) Roericht, 1958

TC 100 stackable tableware, Hans (Nick) Roericht

The TC 100 tableware was designed for a thesis project at the Hochschule für Gestaltung (School of Design) in Ulm for the large-scale catering industry. The tableware was compact, robust and multifunctional and has the optimum design for stacking in a tiny amount of space. With its radical aesthetics, the tableware was one of the best examples of the approach to design of the Ulmer school.
