New - Dibbern: Avenue and Sequence Tableware Decor
Bodo Sperlein announces two new Decors showcased at Ambiente 2019
Taking inspiration from the design language of the Bauhaus, in particular the works of László Moholy-Nagy in celebration of its 100 year anniversary, we present two new decors by Bodo Sperlein for premier German Fine Bone China manufacturer Dibbern
Sequence takes reference from Airbrushing techniques popular amongst the avante-garde of ceramics designers in the 1930s. Now commonly associated with “your Granny’s dusty tea set” explains Bodo, he creates a pattern of subtle intersecting semi spheres which revives this art deco style to the 21st century.
Avenues angular and architectural aesthetic is defined by a linear Bauhaus inspired language. This decor is Bodo’s reflection on urban pathways: cycling to work through the zigzag streets and alleyways of London’s Southbank, Avenue is an abstract, bird’s-eye view of these journeys.
