Innovative German hospitality brand Zieher will deliver three new collections on its stand in Hall 4.2.
The Ice series is a range of stunning plates made of glass chips, which are coalesced and compressed, allowing white and transparent materials to form a charming pattern. The horizontal look of ice floes paired with the layered structure at the edges brings to mind an ice plate freshly cut from a frozen lake. Bevelled edges offer an elegant look and easy handling.
Zieher will present its new stoneware series Pueblo (pictured), delivering the appearance of handmade pieces with its filigree body, organic shapes and contrast between matt and shiny glazes. It consists of round leaf-shaped bowls with a dark glzed inside and plates and mini dishes in pure white. Finally, Shine is a series of double-walled stainless steel bowls.
Boasting an isolating effect, they avoid generating condensed water even at elevated temperatures so cold food stays cold and warm food stays warm longer. The bowl insides come in three variations, fine brushed stainless steel, and two food-safe coatings in ivory and taupe. Shine comes in three sizes.
