Rosenthal: Christmas Gift Ideas For Purists

Purists love clean lines and designs that combine aesthetics and functionality alike. Rosenthal’s seasonal gift ideas will save you a long search and be a welcome addition to any avid designer home.

Pure scandinavian design: Suomi by Rosenthal.


Concentration on the essentials marks the set “Suomi” by the Finn Timo Sarpaneva. With the design of the compact, organic form from the year 1976, Timo Sarpaneva was inspired by the round, smooth pebbles from the coast of Finland. “Suomi” with its flawless perfection is Scandinavian purism for design fans. The combination of white porcelain and metal gives “Suomi” its special character.

The individual parts of this collection were reduced to the basic necessities, therefore the parts are multifunctional. For the design of “Suomi” Timo Sarpaneva received the gold medal of Faenza, the highest award in the world of porcelain. Today “Suomi” is one of the most successful sets of the Rosenthal studio-line.

The Rosenthal Wristwatch Collection:

The Rosenthal wristwatch collection combines contemporary elegance, precise watch-making and the finest materials with an elaborate, handcrafted face made from the best porcelain to create a unique gift idea.

All watches are assembled in Germany by masters of their craft. Rosenthal puts a great deal of attention to detail into manufacturing the watch faces, which are just 1.5 millimetres thick, at its site in Selb, located in the German region of Upper Franconia. They are decorated and painted by hand.


The Nightingale table lamp, designed by Dante – Goods and Bads in collaboration with Rosenthal, quite literally turns the structure and design of a lamp completely on its head: The otherwise normal lampshade of the design piece is rotated 90 degrees, thereby completely redefining the interaction between the light fitting and reflector.

The delicate porcelain body is initially reminiscent of an antique lantern, but its thoroughly modern aesthetics shine through thanks to the clear-cut design and soft beam of LED light. A leather band, available in Bordeaux, dark brown or natural, serves as a handle that can be used to change the position of the light and elegantly conceals the wires. Nightingale is available to order in two different heights, 27 and 42 centimetres.
