I have created my first tableware design for Ritzenhoff – a coffee mug in the My Darling series.
Ritzenhoff is a leading producer of tableware and glassware in Germany, turning around over 30 million items a year. I first crossed their path back in the early Nineties when they brought designers’ collections on the market, and artists like James Rizzi and Philippe Petit-Roulet supplied unique designs for beverage products.
Today, some 300 designers from across the globe are contributing for Ritzenhoff. Needless to say, I am truly happy to have my own mug with the company now.
My design shows the faces of a man and a woman, intertwined in a pretty complex setup using bright colors, and suggesting love, summer, travel, food, nature, and fun. The cylinder-shaped packaging design shows the man’s torso as he is floating. >MORE
