Salt crystals and earth tones create dramatic display on porcelain
A distinctive presentation is everything in today’s restaurant sector. With "salt made", the design brand KAHLA created a KAHLA Professional collection with an artisanal character. The décor, which features salt crystals and soft earthy colours, offers that distinctive touch that is so sough-after by many urban cafés, Mediterranean restaurants or burger restaurants.
Creative and sophisticated
The natural look of "salt made" is the result of a process which seems to produce random patterns. In reality, KAHLA designer Lisa Keller is completely in control: first, with a gentle touch, she lets watery colours flow into each other. Where they form areas or create dramatic colour gradients, the designer adds salt crystals in different sizes onto the still wet colours. The colours are then attracted by the crystals. This creates new images, which change by the second until the colours are completely dry. "It feels as if I create the décor like a meal", says Keller. "A little bit of velvety terracotta, a dash of foggy grey, a pinch of crystals. One last intuitive brush stroke of dark colour for more depth – done." With this technique, each piece has a unique look. Still, everything fits together and the individual pieces form a rustic yet sophisticated ensemble at the table. Therefore "salt made" is suited equally well for the stylish presentation of individual dishes and for all courses of a meal.
A coordinated selection for professional hosts
The "salt made" collection is based on select pieces from the KAHLA Professional selection, which are tailored to the particular needs of the restaurant sector. For pasta, warm or cold dishes, cake and bread, there are plates in four different sizes from the KAHLA classic Update. They are complemented by bowls with handles in different sizes from the Elixyr series, and by dessert bowls and a platter. In addition to thick-walled espresso and cappuccino cups, there are classic breakfast cups and coffee mugs with matching saucers from the Pronto series – vital for every restaurateur serving breakfast, coffee, tea and pastries. As is typical for KAHLA, all of these can be combined with other pieces for custom design ideas.
Thanks to its great impact resistance and durability, "salt made" is made for applications in the restaurant sector. Like the entire KAHLA Professional product range, this collection is safe for dishwashers, salamander grills and microwaves, and has a cut-resistant and sanitary glaze. The entire manufacturing process follows an environmentally-responsible procedure, which fits the natural look of the collection. The porcelain is exclusively made from kaolin, quartz and feldspar – natural materials, which are mined in Germany. During its production in Thuringia, many production steps of "salt made" are still carried out manually. Within the strict KAHLA pro Eco guidelines, the protection of natural resources plays a significant role.
