Format / Porcelain collection


Discipline: Product


Discipline: Product

Format is an innovative complete program for the Rosenthal Studio Line. The products are similar to the design of the 50s and 60s, but shaped by a separate and distinctive design. Basic forms in architecture such as cylinders and cones are made up to a completely new service. The proportions of the individual products are perfectly matched. Format convinces not only by its design but also by its functionality. The cups are stackable and the bowls and trays are coordinated in their dimensions so that they can be stacked easily and space-saving.

Rosenthal once again has it's eye on the prize with its attention to detail in creating elegant products. Not only for the kitchen, the designs can be used in any room or in your office...
Housewares - selected by J'aime Cohen
Based on the styles of the 1950s and 1960s, the unique design vocabulary of this porcelain collection was convincing. Not only that, the harmonious proportions and the combination of single components of different sizes, which are also very lightweight, result in a perfect set with a very beautiful design and high functionality.
