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.
