Rosenthal
Heritage
Collection

BY
GIANNI CINTI

Designer Gianni Cinti translates the history and traditions of Rosenthal with the Heritage Collection into the here and now. The decors he designs are an eclectic interplay of shapes, colours and patterns from different eras and cultures, interwoven with personal memories.

“In the 140-year history of Rosenthal, various forms of visual expression overlap,” says Gianni Cinti, who was surprised by the treasures he discovered in the Rosenthal Archive in Selb. The Italian designer worked with porcelain for the first time and is fascinated by the material. Because it is modern, versatile and one of the oldest materials of all.

Dynasty

While the decors Midas, Turandot and Dynasty differ strikingly from each other, a visual bracket made of gold tones holds the collection together. All three designs have in common Cinti’s extremely imaginative handwriting and the abstracted borrowings from Rosenthal’s history. He sees the decors as “new classics” passed down from generation to generation. Each of the three decor themes is understood as a holistic concept and complemented by matching drinking glass series and linen napkins from Rosenthal as well as cutlery and accessories from Sambonet in unusual colours.

Turandot

East meets west

Inspired by the opera of the same name by Giacomo Puccini, the Turandot decor is an homage to the 18th century chinoiseries, which already played an important role in the Rosenthal designs of the late 19th century. Gianni Cinti tells us that he had the idea for the complex decoration when he remembered a visit to the shore of West Lake in Hangzhou, China.

Dragonflies

The background for the poetic porcelain paintings is a white or dark blue background framed by a narrow gold rim. A lavish farandole of peony blossoms, bamboo and ginkgo leaves in delicate colours meets golden dragonflies.

The interweaving of western and eastern elements is emphasised by the extension of the collection to include elements of classical Chinese food culture such as rice and soup bowls, porcelain spoons, chopstick holders and tea caddies.

Turandot Glass

The collection is complemented by a comprehensive glass collection. In addition to numerous drinking glasses, two glass vases are also available, which are decorated with the golden dragonfly motif. All glass items are available in the colours clear or light purple.
