Rosenthal TAC by Walter Gropius

Rosenthal TAC by Walter Gropius

One of the cult classics of Rosenthal is the “TAC 1” tea service by Walter Gropius. The dishes by the visionary architect and founder of the Bauhaus were premiered in 1969, two years after the father of the International Style had signed a contract for his first project in porcelain. Rosenthal was already a client of the architect’s Boston office, The Architects’ Collaborative (TAC) at the time. As a cult object of design history, it has entered many collections all over the world. Its success has encouraged the Rosenthal Creative Center to realize the full extent of the original idea: a complete dinner, coffee and tea service.
