Design: Barbara Schmidt

In the beginning there was the bowl. A lid on top keeps its content hot. Or cold. Update is porcelain for here and now, for the different eating habits and life styles of today.  24 basic pieces without a predefined intended use. No piece has just one single purpose. The user's imagination has no limits. Complicated pieces such as coffee pots or tureens are left out.

Update – as you like it.

Update Décors

Décor: Barbara Schmidt
A composition of geometric areas of colour in transparent pastel shades that accentuate the bright white of the porcelain and make it shine. The colour elements in pale rose, lavender, mint-grey and porcelain-white overlay each other and blend and are reminiscent of textile surfaces.
