Clear, Inviting & Clean: It’s A Modern Scandi Look by Rosenthal
Scandi style is the epitome of modern living. We love the latest additions from Rosenthal that emphasise the Scandi way of life.
Rosenthal Suomi/Design: Timo Sarpaneva
Sarpaneva’s work for Rosenthal is characterised by his consistent further development of “Scandinavian Style“ principles established in the 1950s. The result was the table set “Suomi” in 1976, a milestone in the history of porcelain design in the twentieth century.
The set’s body is reminiscent of a river pebble, worn down and rounded off over the centuries by the power of water. The unceasing movement of the river, which smoothes the resting stones, is the source of Timo Sarpaneva’s design. The name “Suomi”, which simply means Finland, is a clear homage to his home country. “Suomi” is lent its particular character by the combination of white porcelain and metal. The organic shaping between circle and squares has been honoured with the highest award presented in the porcelain world: the gold medal from Faenza.
Rosenthal Furniture Collection tabel Be and chair Hold/Design: Thomas Probst
Modern in form, simple and Scandinavian in look, and yet extremely up-to-date: the Be table invites you to enjoy a wonderfully relaxed dinner with a solid wooden table top and an intricate, matte black metal frame. Thanks to its compact dimensions, it also fits perfectly into small rooms. You won’t want to get up again out of the finely upholstered seat shell of the Hold chair with its elaborately hand-stitched fabric or leather upholstery. Its matte black frame creates a pleasantly modern contrast, picking up the look of the matching Be table, and creating the wonderful feeling of having arrived home thanks to the combination of both elements.
