After 300 years of tradition, the youngest European porcelain manufacturer, Hering Berlin, has succeeded in creating enthusiasm for their work amongst new style-conscious target groups right across the globe.
Stefanie Hering opened her studio in the Prenzlauer Berg district of Berlin shortly after the Berlin Wall came down. In her view, the effect and power of porcelain as a material had been lost in sheer ornamentation. She works with the pure beauty of the material. And Hering Berlin manufactures its products with the skills of only the finest craftsmen and women. As a result, Stefanie Hering has become an ambassador for German craftsmanship. In 2013 Hering Berlin, porcelain manufacturer for the 21st century, received the Gold Design Award from the Federal Republic of Germany.
Today, some of the world’s most recognized restaurants and five-star hotels work with Hering Berlin porcelain. Both new 5-star hotels in Berlin – the Stue and the Waldorf Astoria – have equipped their restaurants with Hering Berlin.
In 2014, Hering Berlin launched their new "Ocean" designs at the "Maison & Objet" show in Paris. The company's founder Stefanie Hering has chosen, as her creative partner, Berlin illustrator Eleonore Gerhaher. The latter has created images of sea creatures with flowing movements, richness of detail and a good deal of humour. Even if you do not live by the sea, the Ocean Collection is a highlight for every gourmet, who wants to present his culinary creations in pure style.
