Nymphenburg's Flying Tableware

Nymphenburg's Flying Tableware

Artist Carsten Höller has created a stunning collectible tableware line for porcelain manufacturer Nymphenburg.

Artist Carsten Höller’s Flying Tableware collection for porcelain giant Nymphenburg explores two vastly different motifs: the 1928 Flying City concept by Russian architect Georgy Krutikov, and the Benham disc, a 19th century top painted with a black and white pattern that, when spun, transforms into arcs of colour. Both avant-garde themes are near and dear to Höller and have shown up in his past art work. The Nymphenburg series sees them united for the first time, with the manufacturer’s 1932 LOTOS tableware line by Wolfgang von Wersin acting as their new canvas.

The collection, which marks the first in a new series of artist editions (future collaborators include artist Tobias Rehberger and multidisciplinary designer Joep van Lieshout), is available in a limited edition of 25 signed sets. They're comprised of dinner, service and side plates, a teacup and saucer as well as a table centrifuge for rotating the Benham disc plates.
