Design collaboration with Studio Besau-Marguerre
After its successful collaborations with Sebastian Herkner and the Vienna design studio EOOS, the porcelain manufacturer FÜRSTENBERG gives us a first glimpse of its latest creative co-operation: FÜRSTENBERG is working with Studio Besau-Marguerre to develop a side table with a pleated effect, made from high-quality manufacturer’s porcelain. The extravagant design brings the elegance and refinement of porcelain to contemporary home environments.
The porcelain makers are currently working on realising the unique concept of the Hamburg designers. The design duo Eva Marguerre and Marcel Besau, who in their role as interior designers were recently entrusted with furnishing Hamburg’s Elbe Philharmonic Hall, are the latest internationally successful collaboration partners to be recruited for the development of trendsetting porcelain designs.
In Fürstenberg, a side table is taking shape in which the form is the decoration, and the decoration is the form – a three-dimensional pleating, which defines the overall shape of the table. “We wanted to express the smoothness, the poetic, the tenderness, the sensuousness, the vulnerability of porcelain, and have therefore given our side table a soft, textile character,” explained the designer duo about the concept. “Pleats combine these aspects.” This elaborate design demands absolute precision in its manufacture.
