digital porcelain manufactory

We´ve been invited by the Phase XI program to do a company residency in the Königliche Porzellan Manufaktur Berlin (royal porcelain manufactory) to explore the chances and challenges of ceramic 3D printing in industrial contextes. The Königliche Porzellan Manufaktur (KPM) was founded 1763 and supplied the royal court with table ware and sculpture goods since then. In the 20th century the manufactory grew to stable volume of around 200 employees, producing white ware for the international and german market. The shapes of the collections are on the one side historical and contemporary designs on the other hand. What combines both branches of the collections, is the quality of hand work and craft on what the KPM is focusing on. The following clip will show you some impressions of this collaboration.
