Karin Wudtke's fascination for old technical KPM containers came through her husband, the designer Ralf Wudtke. About 30 years ago, she discovered the unusual pots and containers in his kitchen. Over the years, this has resulted in a remarkable collection of crockery.

And so we discover a little treasure during our visit to her apartment in Berlin. In her kitchen cupboards, the most diverse bowls and jars of KPM's historic laboratory porcelain come to light. A selection of them is also used beyond the dining table. The unique set is completed with cups, plates and platters from the URBINO collection.

Inspired by pieces from the past, the LAB Edition was relaunched by KPM a few years ago, under the direction of chief designer Thomas Wenzel.

"The LAB Collection is a gift for all the design lovers of the world."
