A BIT OF HISTORY
Uta Feyl, born in the Czech Republic and educated in Berlin, Uta Feyl has designed for Rosenthal since 1979. Her designs draw on forms found in nature and the human body and her work includes popular series such as 'Venus' and 'Vongola' for Rosenthal's Studio-line range.
Rosenthal was founded in 1879 as a workshop for the decoration of white porcelain by Philipp Rosenthal. The company began to manufacture porcelain in 1891. From the very outset Rosenthal was a company that pointed the way ahead with its forms and décors. The close work with famous designers and artists since the early 1950s had a major influence upon Rosenthal’s further development and the company was the first porcelain manufacturer to become a pioneer for contemporary, modern product design.
