Summiteer, sculptor of his environment, job hopper, comrade — Philip Rosenthal was a multi-faceted, talented and charismatic person — he was a pioneer in the porcelain industry. With technical innovations, state-of-the-art production facilities and contemporary products, he transformed his father’s porcelain factory into an international company for sophisticated tableware and home decor. The studio-line he developed marked a turning point in product development in the 1960s. For long before design was en vogue, the company was collaborating with contemporary artists, architects and designers — the likes of Otto Piene, Walter Gropius, Tapio Wirkkala and Angelo Mangiarotti, for example.
And how about today? Rosenthal has brought the precious legacy of Philip Rosenthal into the present day, demonstrating a holistic approach of the brand: Rosenthal lays the table — with plates, cups and jugs. Rosenthal furnishes the home — with sofas, tables and chairs. Rosenthal creates a cosy ambience — with vases, textiles and accessories. Rosenthal tells the time — with wristwatches, wall clocks and table clocks.
