Launched by Philipp Rosenthal in 1961, studio-line is intended to present “originals of our time” reflecting present-day design trends while combining formal and functional quality. To date, over 150 designers and artists from Walter Gropius to Andy Warhol, from Otto Piene to Lucio Fontana have produced designs for the range. Patricia Urquiola has designed one of the latest tableware service commissioned by Rosenthal for their studio-line. Die Neue Sammlung in Nuremberg has devoted an exhibition to Urquiola’s “Landscape” created for Rosenthal. The exhibition runs until 16 February.



 

Urquiola is one of the most important representatives of international contemporary design. Born in Oviedo, Spain in 1961, she first studied architecture in Madrid and then later under the industrial designer, Achille Castiglioni, in Milan. Today, the multi-award-winning designer lives in Milan where she has been running her own studio for product design, architecture, installation and concept creation since 2001.

“Landscape”, her artistic realisation of the set table from a contemporary point of view, consists of products made of porcelain, glass, cutlery and textiles. The development of this project (2008) took two years time. “Landscape” is characterised by three-dimensional reliefs which lend the porcelain a delicate, translucent appearance evoking Chinese rice-grain porcelain and yet it is also reminiscent of the decoration of traditional Spanish open lacework which has been made by hand for centuries.
