Foster + Partners has designed Datum Tableware in Fürstenberg, Germany.
This project is the first porcelain tableware series designed by Foster + Partners in collaboration with Fürstenberg, Germany's second oldest porcelain manufacturer, founded in 1747.
The new range is a series of plates, cups, mugs and bowls that are dimensionally linked, creating an interchangeable and stackable family of modular tableware that provides exceptional functionality and flexibility.
The design of Datum follows a pure and controlled geometry, which is especially difficult to achieve in porcelain – each piece factors in a number of complexities to maintain the form through the production process.
