Update Silk

Design Form Update: Barbara Schmidt
Design Décor: Barbara Schmidt

Update celebrates its 20th anniversary. In 1998, the company started a gentle revolution in the porcelain stores. With only a handful, multi-functional pieces, KAHLA introduced the innovative design concept Update, created by designer Barbara Schmidt.

The new porcelain series did no longer ignore the changes in our life style and eating habits. Rather, for the first time, these changes were translated into porcelain. The courage to omit the limitations imposed by coffee pot and sugar bowl was rewarded. A recipient of seven international design awards, including the Good Design Award and the red dot Award, Update is one ofour  most successful series to date.

With the new décor "Silk", designer Barbara Schmidt presents her Update series with a special birthday gift.

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.

Together with the food served on the plates, they form a complete picture. In addition to the geometric elements, the three pastel shades appear full-surface on bowls, mugs and mini snack plates and bring a special airiness to the table.
