Rosenthal - Tac Skin Platin dinner plate 16 cm 

This classic Rosenthal design now features a series of graphics that follow the contours of each object, emphasizing its shape. The designs take up the theme of structure by playing on the contrast between opaque and shiny surfaces. It is an idea that Walter Gropius himself pursued in his first project. The sandblasting technique was used on flat pieces to create relief, while the velvety, matte surface of hollow objects such as the teapot was achieved with engraving technology. Small overlapping leaves produce a platinum-colored mosaic that extends across the surface of the plate and emphasizes the shape with a simple line around the outline of the edge.

Walter Gropius

Walter Gropius was born in Berlin in 1883 and died in Boston in 1969. Founded The Architects Collaborative Inc. (TAC), Cambridge, Massachusetts in 1946. Gropius studied architecture in Berlin and Munich. In 1918 he was called to Weimar where, as Director of the Academy of Art and of the School of Applied Arts, he founded the Staatliche Bauhaus. 1937–1952 professorship at Harvard University. As co-founder of the Deutscher Werkbund and as spiritual father of Bauhaus, Gropius had a major influence upon twentieth century artistic endeavour. He constructed production facilities for Rosenthal at Selb and Amberg and also designed the timeless »TAC 1« tea service. The association, which was fruitful in many directions, commenced in 1963.

Rosenthal

A porcelain and tableware company founded in 1879. Rosenthal products fascinate with their design, functionality, quality and innovative capacity. In 1879, returning from an experience in the United States of America, Philipp Rosenthal decided to open a porcelain decoration workshop in Bavaria. In 1907 the company branded every product with its own name. The following year he bought Thomas, a brand later addressed to a youth audience. In 1950 his son Philip took on responsibility of the company, which in 1961 inaugurated Rosenthal Studio-Line, a brand related to projects and collaborations with celebrated artists, architects, and designers. With the inauguration of Studio-Line, starting from 60s started collaborations with Raymond Loewy and Richard Latham (Forma 2000)Tapio Wirkkala (Variation, Century)[], Mario Bellini (Cupola), Luigi Colani (Drop), Walter Gropius (TAC), Bjørn Wiinblad (Magic Flute)] and Timo Sarpaneva (Suomi) began in the 1960s. In 1993 he began his collaboration with Versace, whose Avedon's shot for the advertising campaign with Sylvester Stallone and Claudia Schiffer remains famous. When the designer died, the collaboration continued with his sister Donatella (Les Rêves Byzantins). Meanwhile, other artists and designers participate in the creation of design lines, such as Marcello Morandini, Jasper Morrison (Moon), Patricia Urquiola (Landscape).
