New Challenges, New Concepts
Our modern global world is characterised by flexibility, speed and a constant change of focus – and everyday life thus primarily calls for variable concepts, unconventional solutions and compatible systems. What Kahla does best is to ensure that your every wish comes true regarding porcelain. Porcelain that suits you: individual and flexible - like the lifestyle of the numerous Kahla customers.
The challenge they face: innovation. And for Kahla, innovation means Solutions that are produced economically, ecologically and are ultimately affordable. producing solutions that go beyond inflexible processes and the conventions of yesterday. Solutions that are producted economically, ecologically, and that are ultimately affordable. Kahla took on this challenge enthusiastically. And set out to create a new dimension of eating, enjoyment and hospitality.
Design Means Individuality
But why design? According to Greek philosopher Diogenes, all you really need for drinking is your cupped hand. Yet everybody knows how different hands can be! And this is what Kahla is interested in: Your individuality.
Modern design, giving something an individual distinction that goes way beyond the actual function called for – that is the hallmark of Kahla. Kahla develops what best suits you
Our strength stems from our wealth of practical experience. “I get my best ideas in the kitchen,” says Barbara Schmidt, one of the two Kahla designers, who are continually showered with prizes. In Barbara Schmidt and Mirjami Rissanen, Kahla has two international award-winning trend scouts developing new Kahla products.
More than 60 design awards in fourteen years - two numbers that underscore Kahla/Thüringen Porzellan’s success story. For the most part, prices were awarded for product design, but also marketing (even including packaging) and innovation activities. Kahla is rightfully proud of the numerous reddot awards and German Designer Club prizes. And they were particularly pleased that the porcelain even picked up awards in the USA (in 2004 in the renowned IDEA competition) and in 1999 and 2002 the Good Design Award in Japan.
In addition to design competitions and workshops, the company stands in permanent dialogue with a host of ambitious avant-garde minds. The fact that they are asked again and again by young innovative designers to enter into partnerships proves that Kahla knows what modern people need. Today. And tomorrow.
