The German company KOBER, leader in technical ceramics, and Olivari, the well-known Italian producer of high quality door handles, are two companies with more than a century of experience in their respective fields. With ENTER_PORCELAIN they join forces to develop and showcase a series of innovative products and manufacturing possibilities of porcelain as a material.
Jonathan Radetz and Benjamin Kube invited 10 well-known German design studios to work with the historic porcelain producer. They all set to work looking for new ways to combine this unique material with brass to develop new design concepts. KOBER’s goal is to introduce fresh ideas to the market and to invite designers to use porcelain in new ways. The exhibition is completed by an overview of the range of production methods offered this technical ceramics factory whose hallmark is high quality products with a focus on surface finish and a variety of dimensions.
