Intense iron red, strong blue, bright lemon yellow or classic white: characteristic of the URBINO is the single-color plate surface and outside of the cups, crowned by a line on the plate or cup rim as well as on the handles. Our team set the scene for the birthday child together with the stylist and photographer duo Stills & Strokes.

A visual and textual sample of the result:

When Trude Petri abandoned her pottery apprenticeship in Hamburg in 1927 to move to Berlin, the then 21-year-old probably had no idea how lasting an impact she would have on German porcelain design in the first half of the 20th century.

Initially, she deepened her ceramic studies at the Staatliche Porzellan-Manufaktur (later KPM Berlin) and was encouraged by the director at the time, Nicola Moufang, and the sculptor Otto Gothe. The new director Günther von Pechmann also recognized the young Petri's talent, offered her a permanent position in 1929 and commissioned her to develop a service with a clear formal language in the spirit of the New Objectivity.
