The good life

After and alongside successful projects for partners of their agency, in 2005, Christian and Michael Sieger decided to launch their own premium brand SIEGER, which includes the SIEGER by FÜRSTENBERG porcelain collections. Then as now, they were driven by a desire to create icons and modern classics for tableware and home decor and to enrich people’s lives with beautiful and yet highly functional porcelain. In the Porzellanmanufaktur FÜRSTENBERG studios, SIEGER designs are transformed by hand into products of exceptional quality.

The MY CHINA! dinner service combines the quality of handcrafted tableware with universal functionality. It is based on a precisely perfected system of dimensions and shapes with exactly coordinated diameters and it’s available in ten designs. All items harmonise with each other and can be flexibly combined. Despite the particularly fine quality of the porcelain, highly pragmatic needs are met: the dinner service, with the exception of just a few products, is dish washer-safe. Featuring wall thicknesses as thin as two and a half millimetres, the MY CHINA! collection is elaborately handcrafted in the studios of Porzellanmanufaktur FÜRSTENBERG using precise techniques. This level of quality can be seen and felt.

With the Desire tumblers the finest porcelain meets fascinating reflective surfaces in gold or platinum – a small digestif cup, a slightly larger cup for vodka and a tall water beaker represent the logical continuation of what began with the Sip of Gold series. All three pieces have been crafted to the highest standards and feature a wall thickness of just 2.5 millimetres.
Between ancient and modern – the Sip of Gold champagne goblets pair wafer-thin porcelain with finest precious metal. Michael Sieger designed the collection as a contemporary adaptation of a classic silver goblet that inspired him. The interplay between the precious metal and the drink results in hundreds of reflections and creates the impression of liquid gold. The collection comprise 34 models: they are available in pure white or black, with precise reliefs or graphic designs. Tumblers adorned with reflective platinum or cobalt-blue drops are just as much a part of the series as the striking superhero designs of The Sparkling 4 & Friends.

The gin and cocktail tumblers Prometheus, offers an exceptional way to present everything from classics like gin and tonic to trendy new mixes. The porcelain objects feature a prominent relief of a man’s face that transforms each piece into a tiny sculpture. But don’t let the striking masculine look deceive you: the tumblers are velvety soft to the touch, with a matt finish on the outside. They are available in white and black, and perfectly complements the ice bucket of the same name.

The champagne cooler Faces presents femininity through artistically crafted porcelain. Three facial reliefs blend seamlessly into one other; eyes, nose and mouth have been modelled on classical proportions. Faces is ideal for presenting sumptuous beverages. Used as a vase, lush flowers liberate the imagination, thus giving rise to thoughts of lavishly coiffed hair.

There are two starting points to the design process: firstly, an exploration of people’s needs; secondly, a spontaneous idea. Extensive research on the history of a product and international habits often provides a crucial stimulus. Nowadays, who needs dishes that aren’t dishwasher-proof and can’t be used for a variety of occasions? Collections such as MY CHINA! and SEVEN, in which every item can be combined and harmonised with every other, meet the needs of today and tomorrow.

The drive to achieve perfection and absolute harmony is evident throughout the entire design process. Every single creation is developed over a period of months or sometimes years. There is a constant focus on form and function, the same attention to detail goes into the texture and feel of each piece. This process is aided by 3D prototypes, which are either printed digitally or made with lavish care in the in-house modelling workshop.
