Taking a walk through a snowy pine forest in icy temperatures and glorious sunshine is one of the great traditions and pleasures of the winter season. And it is exactly this age-old ritual that the new Yule design evokes. Featuring sprigs of fir, luxuriant cones and bright-red berries on a coolly shimmering surface, the decorations look as fresh as if you yourself had just popped out to gather a collection of small, frost-covered branches. Delicate golden accents shimmer like warm candlelight among the sprigs and branches. Red ribbons in combination with elegant green symbolise the excitement we all feel as Christmas approaches.
The naturalness of the decoration, its classic straight lines and Christmassy colour scheme conjure up an atmosphere that combines the simplicity and beauty of nature with the elegance of the festive period to evoke a feeling that we all seek at Christmas and find reflected in this tableware set: the magic of warmth and reflection.
Press Release: Rosenthal Zodiac Plate Year of the Dog/Design: iSHONi
In the Chinese Zodiac, the dog represents elegance, joy and friendliness. Mainly, however, it’s a family pet, characterised by devotion, loyalty and attentive communication. Based on these properties, the iSHONi Design Office has created a harmonious star sign plate for Rosenthal in vibrant orange. The playful side of the dog is depicted in the shape of an amulet made of natural wooden pearls which he proudly wears around his neck as a jewel, together with the golden key of wisdom. The water blue and turquoise leather straps are reminiscent of the interaction between natural forces such as wind and water. Decorative symbols around the edge such as a triple spiral or the tree of life make a direct connection with creation and the unfathomableness of life. They also symbolise the belief in the good in people which is one of the dog’s characteristics.
