Description

With the “VITRUV” service form, MEISSEN defines an entirely new class of design for the table: linear, clean-cut and purist. Since the manufactory’s founding, MEISSEN artists have frequently looked to architecture when creating their exceptional porcelain forms and decorations. “VITRUV” builds on this tradition, taking inspiration from one of the fundamental elements of architecture, favoured by the Ancient Roman architect from whom the collection inherits its name: the column. The new service form translates the essence of architecture into porcelain form, with refined details that exude sophistication and craftsmanship. The oval shapes of pieces like the jug, cup and sugar bowl contain a unique and distinctive feature: a hand-applied foot, topped with a finely milled groove, lend these pieces an element of weightlessness, a completely new aesthetic in the manufactory's repertoire.

The specially created “Graphic” relief pattern interprets the design vocabulary of the “VITRUV” form into a number of variations. With an effect similar to reflecting prisms, the reliefs lend the porcelain a schematic structure and an evocative feel. Meanwhile, one of the manufactory’s most beloved decorative motifs, the “Ming Dragon”, is reinterpreted in crisp black on select components of the service. Dynamically positioned on starter and dessert plates in detailed, hand-painted strokes, the dragon décor lends an element of the sublime to the clear, linear form, underscoring the timelessness of the design.

As the VITRUV service was created with modularity in mind, the purist design lends itself to a wide range of combination possibilities. Pieces with the “Graphic” relief pattern, available in white glaze or in partial bisque, can be paired with one another or complemented with the “Ming Dragon”-decorated pieces, depending on the setting or occasion.
