Description
Hella Jongerius for Koninklijke Tichelaar Makkum - 'B Set' porcelain tableware (39 pieces!)
1997, the Netherlands

Material: porcelain, various glazings
Size: various
Background: In 1999, Koninklijke Tichelaar Makkum began producing the B-set, the six-piece porcelain dinnerware by Hella Jongerius. This not only signals the start of a special partnership, it is also the first time in the history of the company that they produce in porcelain. In an industry where perfection has become the norm since industrialisation, Hella Jongerius focuses on the concept of 'imperfection' in this design.

Originally a 7-piece dinnerware. Now it consists of: Eight large plates, eight small plates, six soup bowls, eight mugs and nine smaller cups.

B-Set 405W #451 has become an icon in Dutch designer history and included in a large number of international museums. Besides white, the dinnerware is also available in six other colours.

Explanation of the inscription: 405W = recipe of the porcelain; # = pause sign; 451 = recipe of the glazing; HJ = Hella Jongerius
