Reaching for the moon and stars – Cosmic moments of pleasure in porcelain

Press release   •   May 05, 2020 12:10 BST

Familiar yet intangible, always there yet unreachable – the moon and stars have fascinated us humans throughout the ages. In our digital age, we yearn for more analogue, cosmic moments, a feeling that has been captured by Villeroy & Boch in two new tableware collections: NewMoon and NewWave Stars let us literally reach for the moon and stars.

NewMoon: Design inspired by the moon

The imposing, mystical aura of the moon was the inspiration behind the pure and expressive design of the NewMoon collection. Clear lines depict a fine, asymmetrical crescent moon on glossy white Premium Porcelain. The result is a breathtaking aesthetic that you can see and feel – exclusive, extravagant and perfect for an elegant “moonlit” dinner. When placed on a midnight black table, the round plates, bowls and dishes reveal their powerful impulsiveness. The exquisite charm of NewMoon is accentuated even more by the black underplates from the Manufacture Rock range: the rough slate texture sets an impressive stage for the smooth, glossy glazed porcelain. Matching cutlery and glasses are available that surprise with their innovative, asymmetrical shapes.

NewWave Stars: Zodiac signs and constellations for the perfect coffee

The NewWave Stars gift collection transfers the celestial bodies onto pure white porcelain as constellations. Combining an elegant deep dark blue with a high-quality real-gold décor, the décor brings together the astronomical and astrological study of the night sky in a distinctly subtle way: the stylishly shimmering zodiac signs give the twelve mugs a unique character. In turn making them great personal gifts for people who are interested in stars and zodiac signs and who know how to celebrate (indulgent) moments with a good coffee and an extravagant cup.
