“We can no longer afford to bring products to the market which bring no joy to
customers after even a short while because they are impractical, dated or simply not
modern enough” – such were the words of Dr. Hermann Gretsch, whose Form
1382 revolutionised the world of porcelain in the early 1930s. This legendary
design, which he created back then for Arzberg, has become one of the absolute
classics of modern industrial design. It’s on display at the Museum of Modern Art
in New York as one of the few porcelain exhibits.
