AMBIENTE PREVIEW: SCHOENWALD
Discover what exciting new ranges and extensions porcelain specialist Schoenwald will unveil at Ambiente 2016, which takes place February 12-16, 2016
Porcelain specialist Schoenwald will once more demonstrate its expertise in professional tableware with its new introductions.
Schoenwald will introduce additions to its Noble China Allure Collection and minimalist Unlimited Collection with brand-new coupe plates. The reduced design language creates new platforms to allow for diverse combinations.
Flat couple plates in four different sizes have been added to Allure, which has created a furore among world-class chefs and restaurateurs since its introduction last year. The new coupe plates are available in sizes ranging from 15 to 31cm.
Meanwhile, the new coupe extensions to the Unlimited Collection include flat coupe plates in seven sizes and deep coupe plates – 21cm and 28cm. All-rounders, they offer chefs unlimited scope for interpretation and presentation of their creations.
Schoenwald has also extended its Pottery décor, introduced in 2014, into a full range and added a new colour, Pottery Unique White. The full range consists of some 50 pieces with new coffee pots, creamers, mugs and cups.
