Eggcups by Walter Gropius
The TAC egg cup is part of the tableware series of the same name, which was designed by the world-famous founder of the Bauhaus, Walter Gropius. Gropius focused on puristic, geometric forms in his design, giving the porcelain a timeless poetry. Circle and ball function as form-giving elements, while delicate decorations with angular elements round off the design and make the tableware unmistakable.
Bauhaus TAC tableware series
When Rosenthal Walter Gropius launched TAC in 1969, his designs also included a formally completely independent series for the coffee table, which did not go into production. In the drawer of the product development department there were already drawings for a dinner service at that time, which followed the formal language of the successful tea set. They now served as a model for the current Rosenthal TAC Gropius tableware.
