An oversize enchanted garden, interpreted by pieces from the Landscape collection for Rosenthal, where natural materials like marble, stone and onyx disport themselves in a splendour of pale and dark, light and shadow, bas-relief and shadow, gap and solid. Surrounded by a “grilliage”, the composition is served to the public on an embroidered tray, where the guest feels like “Alice In Wonderland”, surrounded by huge vases with different forms of ornamentation, overturned cups used as seats, and bowls that aspire to become tanks. The super-sophisticated textures are not just surface decorations; they become a kind of bas-relief inspired by the idea of an elegant virus invading form, expressed in different heights and concave and convex shapes, or only visible through transparencies. A contemporary interpretation, a coming-together of the traditional “engraving” technique and numerically controlled machine drilling. Natural colours and vegetation bring the scenario to life.
