b-set carafe, white

In 1999 we put into production Hella Jongerius' seven-part porcelain dinner service.  In an industry where, since industrialisation, perfection has become the norm, in this design Hella Jongerius focuses on the concept of 'imperfection'. She studied the possibilities of restoring individuality to the serial production process, an important recurring theme in her work. During a period she spent working at the European Ceramics Work Centre in ‘s Hertogenbosch (1997) she experimented with clay by firing it at a high temperature, which distorted each piece. This is how she developed the method for producing the B-Set, in which each piece acquires its own unique character and regains its individuality.
The B-Set is now considered an icon of Dutch design history and has been included in the collections of many international museums.

t.e. 174red white vase

Together with the Big White Pot, the Red White Vase has become a modern classic. Both are the end result of Hella Jongerius exploration of medieval pots. Hella Jongerius cast these two vessels from the moulds of restored medieval pots. The rough casting seams, along with the potter's traditional thumbprint, give the impression of antique vessels while the strong, solid forms are a clear indications of modern industry.
