More colours, more pride: Rosenthal and photographer Martin Schoeller celebrate the LGBT community.
Dazzling colours and drag queens are now featured by star photographer Martin Schoeller on a high-quality porcelain.
For the limited edition plates in Rosenthal’s Art Edition, Martin Schoeller artfully applied the glittering drag culture to porcelain. Eight motifs in shimmering colours characterise the collection. Six of them are limited to 100 pieces each and thus already have what it takes to become a collector’s item. After all, all of the designs were created by one of the most sought-after photographers of our time.
Martin Schoeller has had them all in front of the lens: Barack Obama, Angelina Jolie, George Clooney or Angela Merkel. He has also portrayed homeless people, drag queens and bodybuilders.
‘zoeppritz since 1828’ x Rosenthal
The rainbow has always been a symbol of harmony and peace. The design of collection was created by Jan Alt, Art Director of ‘zoeppritz since 1828’. A restrained tone-in-tone pattern of historical logos tells the long history and the development of the brands ‘zoeppritz since 1828’ and Rosenthal. As a colour contrast to this and as a sign of modernity and openness, a rainbow unfolds on porcelain and textile objects in the first collection.
60 years Rosenthal Studio-Line – “Sixty & Twelve” anniversary vase collection
To mark the 60th anniversary of studio-line, Rosenthal unveiled 60 selected vases in twelve different colours that reflect future design trends and at the same time represent a journey through Rosenthal’s design history. The limited edition alternates between restrained shades of grey, pastel green and blue as well as intense berry tones with sonorous names such as Sea Salt, Tangerine, Mint and Abyss.
Included in the illustrious birthday series are Rosenthal classics such as Plissée by Martin Freyer (1968), Pollo by Tapio Wirkkala (1970), Conio by Michele De Lucchi (1994), Fast by Cédric Ragot (2006) and Fondale by Office for Product design (2017). The shapes are as varied as the colours: they range from pure, architectural volumes to sumptuous, floral objects. The restrained tones of the palette correspond with the strictly geometric vase shapes, while the intense colours blend with the poetically playful objects.’
