‘inwhite’ & ‘inblue’ reinterpret the blue and white porcelain that’s been a rörstrand tradition for nearly 300 years. the two collections, designed by swedish monica förster design studio, are comprised of a bowl, pasta bowl, dinner and side plates, a large serving dish, and a mug. a thorough study formed the basis of the items, which eventually concluded in timeless pieces adapted to modern eating and living habits.

‘inblue’ & ‘inwhite’ collection




for ‘inblue’, blue pigment seeps and spreads over the wares in a characteristic rörstrand manner, adding a dash of personality to each item. the color is influenced by the unspoiled nature of sweden, and represented with a vibrant midnight blue. ‘inwhite’ pays tribute to blanche, a classic rörstrand design dating back to the 1930s. straight, clean lines combine to produce a softly rounded appearance as the dishes float on the table. a discreet R is placed on the side of each piece, proudly proclaiming its origin with a seal of quality.
