Embodying the essence of modern dining culture, Fuerstenberg will present new tableware service Omnia, a super-versatile collection of just four pieces – dinner plate, side dish, bowl, cup – that are designed to fit any culinary eventuality.
The stackable pieces feature a matte, organic and rough exterior and a smooth inside. In addition to pure white, Omnia comes in various colours including anthracite, light brown, bronze and dark brown, as well as the option for Omnia Ritual, anthracite-coloured pieces with hand-applied 24k gold plating.
The fine porcelain pieces are thin-walled yet double-walled meaning the handleless cup and bowl can be held without burning fingers.
