Nymphenburg Packaging

The Bavarian porcelain manufacturer Nymphenburg’s history is noble. Founded in 1747 the first workshops were established on the grounds of the Nymphenburg castle in Munich, where the company’s only production site remains to this day, creating objects of exacting quality and tradition for a worldwide audience. Already shortly after it’s founding Nymphenburg began working together with renowned artists and artisans, a tradition that continues today through the collaborations with Mr. Barnaby Barford, Mr. Konstantin Grcic, Mrs. Hella Jongerius, Mr. Reed Kram und Mr. Clemens Weisshaar, Mr. Gustavo Lins, Mr. Ted Muehling, among others. In accordance to Nymphenburg’s heritage and traditions, Bureau Borsche designed a new line of packaging to encapsulate the manufacturer’s oeuvre. Being one of the last porcelain companies worldwide to still handcraft each individual piece, Nymphenburg’s packaging needed to match the standard of its contents. The delicate object’s of „white gold“ are now wrapped in an ethereal tissue paper with a rhombus pattern in reference to the Wittelbacher coat of arms. The sturdy boxes in which the objects are nestled are lined with a customized blue Gmund paper that creates a subtle line between bottom and cover. When unpacked the sky-blue interiors and white covers of the boxes create the same white and blue rhombus pattern of the Wittelsbacher insignia and the Bavarian flag, a reference to the cloud speckled summer sky of Munich and Nymphenburg’s heritage.
