Rolf at Sketch Creative Talk in Conversation with Harry Richardson and Clare Page

Earlier this week Rolf was in conversation with Clare Page and Harry Richardson from the design studio Committee, opening the Ketel One Creative Talks at Sketch London. Billed as ‘a monthly series of informal discussions from celebrated minds in the creative industry’, Rolf discussed his own cultural influences and how they can be seen throughout his work before becoming the main theme of our recent show ‘typisch deutsch’. They also explored the use of nostalgic themes as a tool for commercial industry.

The casual, salon-style conversations give an insight to the minds of brilliant influencers in art and design. It looks to be an exciting program with Ron Arad, Max Lamb, Faye Toogood and Piergiorgio Robino taking part in further talks, there’s no better place to spend a relaxing Sunday evening.  Thanks Clea!

A pillow is injected with movement through a ‘breathing’ motion concealed within. Its ‘whispering window’ quietly echoes the faint sound of human breathing encouraging the viewer to interact intimately with it. The piece is full of human traces, while, simultaneously, is conspicuously absent of it.

Public Fair Days / 26-27 June 11.00-21.00 / 28-29 June 11.00-19.00 / 30 June 11.00-18.00 Followed by the charity party in aid of Marie Curie at 19.00 / 1-2 July 11.00-21.00

Workshop visit at Nymphenburg Porzellan Manufaktur


During set up of our exhibition in the beautiful spaces of the Nymphenburg Porzellan Manufaktur, we were lucky to get a tour through the extensive workshops.

Nymphenburg is historically the porcelain manufactory of the Bavarian crown. Since its founding in 1747 porcelain has been produced here in the same way. Even today all mechanical equipment is powered by the water which runs from the estate’s stream. All pieces are completely made by hand which is a fascinating process to watch. We very much enjoyed our visit!

An intimate exhibition at Nymphenburg Porzellan Manufaktur presenting ‘Die/Das Maß’

Nymphenburg Porzellan Manufaktur are presenting ‘Die/das Maß’, which was specially designed by Rolf and hand-crafted by Nymphenburg for his ‘typisch deutsch?’ exhibition. The work celebrates the brewing traditions in Germany, while drawing attention to this unnoticed, yet familiar object. The use of white biscuit porcelain belies its traditional function and calls for the viewer to respond to its pure form, free of practical purpose.

The work forms part of Nymphenburg’s “Edition” collection and is available to purchase in the Nymphenburg shop in Munich or online.

For the exhibition, Rolf also created a number of new, small-scale witty and surreal objects, that are intended to demonstrate his typical conceptual approach of finding beauty in the simplicity of everyday objects by adding elements of wit and humour to their purity and utilitarian form.
