This collection is not only beautiful but it is a tactile play on your senses. The upper surface of plates and mug are smooth and have a glazed finish but the bottom part is unglazed and feels like unfinished pottery.
A note about the designers:
Internationally acclaimed designers Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby founded their London-based studio in 1996. Their diverse body of work spans industrial design, furniture, lighting and site specific installations as well as limited edition pieces and public commissions such as the London 2012 Olympic Torch and a £2 coin designed for the Royal Mint.
Their work is held in permanent museum collections around the world including V&A and Design Museum in London, Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York and Art Institute of Chicago.
In 2001 Barber and Osgerby established architecture and interior design practice Universal Design Studio and in 2012 they founded MAP, specializing in research and strategy-led design.
They bring a deep understanding and respect for British craft to their work with Royal Doulton, and wealth of experience. Their multidisciplinary portfolio, spanning furniture, architecture and industrial design, echoes Royal Doulton’s vision to create collections combining both intelligence and function, making it the perfect partnership.
