In context of our special Future blog, we presented there very new product, which exactly fit in this theme. Belgian artist Carsten Höller designed for german traditional porcelain manufacture Nymphenburg very special edition of tableware called Flying city of Nymphenburg. The design comprises a combination of a service plate, a dinner plate, a side plate, and a teacup and saucer with two different inspirations.
The first one is a rotating Benham disc created by Charles Benham in 1895 and the second one presents the utopian design of Flying city by russian constructivist Georgy Tikhonovich Krutikov (1899-1958) from 1928. He created a visionary design of the futuristic city with flats, shops, factories, hotels and so on completely flying in the sky. This fascinating future is now on the fragile porcelain.
