Rörstrand – Tradition & Modernity from Sweden
Rörstrand is the second oldest tableware factory in Europe. Since 1726 the Swedish manufactory produces their creations. In the 19th century, the company was one of the world's largest tableware factories and produced the folk dishes of the Swedish. Arabia was also a foundation of the tableware giant. Since the 1950s, the company has become a modern manufacturer of high-quality and at all times reliable tableware, without ever losing sight of the basics - functionality. The collections are used in Scandinavia for celebratory tables just now. If in Sweden "the good dishes" is mentioned, they are often services of Rörstrand meant by.
A long way to the modern manufacturer
For three centuries people ate of Rörstrand dishes and still do it today. The fact that a company has to develop over time and reinvent itself a bit is also accurate here. In the 1950s, Rörstrand turned away from mass production and brought out rarified services, in line with the international breakthrough of Scandinavian design. Since then, the brand's collections have often been accompanied by big names.
Designs of Scandinavian giants
The mother of the Swedish tableware Marianne Westman designed among others Rörstrands Mon Amie long-favorite tableware. It has been published for several years now.
Also Alf Wallander or Jonas Bohlin were creative for the flamboyant dishes.
With three series in the assortment, Bohlin provided the opportunity to combine plates and bowls of the Qvint, Corona and Carisma series. These are very reserved dishes, which cause a stir in the case of Corona with a small brim. More thrilling, more colorful and inspired by Scandinavian nature, Hanna Werning presents the Rörstrand Service Kulinaria. Even the classic Swedish Grace from the time of change from mass to class is produced today again and pleases in a revised and especially high-quality performance experts of the Scandinavian design with authentic sobriety as well as exclusive special editions. All told, the design is representative of Nordic functionalism.
The most famous service of the brand is Ostindia, which has been produced perpetually since 1932, first in earthenware and now in porcelain. Since 2009, the brand belongs to the brand empire of the Finnish industrial group Fiskars.
