Villeroy & Boch: Manufacture Rock collection

Villeroy & Boch’s Manufacture Rock collection is a new and confident take on the current global interior design trends — high-quality craftsmanship, natural materials, expressive surfaces and original decorations. The range comprises tableware, glasses, cutlery and accessories. The Manufacture Rock tableware is inspired by slate and is recreated using premium porcelain. But it’s the colours that provide a surprising effect: in addition to the typical deep slate grey, the products are also available in the Manufacture Rock Blanc range in Villeroy & Boch white, a colour not often associated with slate.

This opens up further creative scope for new colour compositions — especially when combined with the Manufacture Rouge and Manufacture Gris coffee and dinner sets where every piece is hand-painted and features a colourful spiral decor. A new addition to this range is the Manufacture Rock Desert decor line which is inspired by Australian Aboriginal art, one of the oldest art traditions in the world. The expressive decor reflects the popular dot painting style, which was developed in the Papunya artists’ colony. White and red dots merge into fascinating patterns on the rough slate surface, adding an artistic touch to the table and creating an attractive way to present home-made culinary masterpieces. All the pieces are dishwasher-and-microwave-safe.
