Fuerstenberg celebrates Wagenfeld

On the 25th anniversary of Wilhelm Wagenfeld’s death, Fuerstenberg acknowledges the classic’s elegance

The aesthetic link between form and functionality has had a long tradition at Fuerstenberg. This year, the porcelain manufacturer commemorates the great Bauhaus pioneer Wilhelm Wagenfeld and, for the 25th anniversary of his death, dedicates an exhibition to him in the museum on the castle grounds in Fuerstenberg.

In cooperation with glas museum Boffzen, Fuerstenberg is showcasing the “Everyday objects - Wilhelm Wagenfeld and contemporary porcelain design” exhibition to him.

Resolutely functional design and eternal elegance. The style classic Wagenfeld is a milestone in porcelain and tableware design. In the spirit of Bauhaus, Wilhelm Wagenfeld created the “Service 639” in 1934, which was awarded the Gold Medal at the World Exhibition three years later. The timelessly contemporary tableware still stands out today with its lasting modernity.

Material, functionality and design form a unit in each object. This allows the vases, jars and stacked bowls from the Wagenfeld edition to be just as stylish individually as when combined.

The shapely double bowl is a skilled master of transformation. Placed on its flat handle, the turned-over lid turns into an additional unique piece.
