A fascinating voyage to distant lands - Malindi: natural elegance with exotic flair in the finest porcelain

Press release   •   Feb 06, 2019 12:42 GMT

From Africa to India – Villeroy & Boch’s new Malindi tableware collection recounts the adventurous voyage of the Portuguese mariner Vasco da Gama, who discovered the sea route from Africa to India over 500 years ago. The Malindi design portrays the foreign cultures encountered by Gama in elegant Premium Bone Porcelain. The artistically braided baskets from the African town of Malindi, which Gama passed through in 1498 and which gives the collection its name, are featured in a delicate relief structure. And the exotic spices traded at India’s sumptuous markets were the inspiration for impressive depictions of pepper, clove and ginger plants, adding beautiful warm splashes of colour to the pure white porcelain. These decorative features combine natural elegance with exotic flair in an exquisite table collection for discerning tastes.

Malindi tableware invites diners to embark on a fascinating voyage to distant lands while at the same time creating a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere. Malindi brings the beauty of nature into elegant interiors.

The La Classica premium cutlery series, pink-stemmed Allegorie Premium Rosewood or Octavie glasses will add the perfect finishing touches to the table setting. Anyone wishing to add more trendy pink colour highlights can find coordinating tableware in the Anmut Rosewood collection.

Villeroy & Boch's new Signature products will be available from summer 2019.
