b-set by hella jongerius – 10th anniversary

The B-set from Hella Jongerius was launched in 1999 and is generally considered to be an icon in the history of Dutch design. Reason enough for Royal Tichelaar Makkum to celebrate its 10th anniversary by extending the set with four new colours: blue, green, brown and pink.

While makers of crockery usually aim for perfection, the B-set is conspicuous for plates that can barely be stacked orderly, dishes that are not quite circular and mugs of varying thickness. Such little deviations come unavoidable with the deliberately chosen production process. The peccadillos make each piece special; the beauty of imperfection is made visible in a most inspiring manner.

The B-set is available from Royal Tichelaar.
