That co-operation with Walter Gropius is not only a milestone and a special treasure in the company’s history but also a significant part of Bavaria’s architecture and design history. Until this day, the Rosenthal porcelain factory at Rotbühl has been a sophisticated manufacturing site for Rosenthal porcelain in which craftsmanship, art and highly modern technology are united, following the Bauhaus ideas.
The anniversary edition will be complemented with the »Stripes 2.0« motif, an abstract reference to the original:
The decor is reminiscent of the Rosenthal Rothbühl site’s colours inspired by Bauhaus, taking up its façade elements made of exposed concrete in some items. Happy birthday, Bauhaus!
Inspired by the combination of the lid and handle on Walter Gropius’ TAC teapot, British designer Bethan Laura Wood created a tea set that is both striking and expressive in homage to the iconic original.
Bethan Laura Wood is particularly appreciated for her experimental designs that play with colour and material. For the Bauhaus anniversary year, the British designer created an expressive jubilee motif reminiscent of overlapping warp and weft threads in the manufacture of textiles, providing the austere shape with a flowing and, at the same time, playfully colourful motif.
We talked to the designer about her love of crafts, her epiphanies in Selb and English tea time with German porcelain.
