Orbits most remarkable detail is the rim: this particular semi matte feature was achieved by capturing one step in the production process, namely the polishing of the rims after firing. The edge of every piece was extended to a fine, semi-matte, polished rim, which stands in contrast to the glazed surface and emphasizes the materiality of porcelain.

For Augarten, the second-oldest porcelain manufacturer in Europe, Orbit was the first commission for a dinner service in 40 years. This company has great mastery in producing exquisite ceramics and takes great pride in their colorful hand painted surface decorations.
