ure-white, the simple silhouette of a circle and the understated elegance of a few lines. Out of all the new products presented at the Salone del Mobile, we were instantly attracted to this: a spectacular tableware set composed by six collections of “haute cuisine” porcelain.


  • What is it The Theater of Food, a project that includes the tableware collections Gourmet by 1400° Mitterteich.
  • What is it This spectacular project includes six Gourmet collections, the result of the partnership between the designer and the top chefs. Here, plates and accessories take centre stage, transforming the table into the perfect setting for all your meals.
  • How is it made It is composed of six collections, 176 plates mostly round as well as oval and more organic shapes (in a simple and pure aesthetic of course), in many different sizes. All made of the highest quality porcelain, the pieces that play with volumes, sinuous curves and with effects of shadows and lights, are available in the totally white version or with delicate graphic decorations and matching tones.
  • Who is it by Defne Koz, a designer with a clean and original style, capable to translate poetry with a few simple and refined lines. Her style focuses on iconic products, of great emotional impact, that go beyond trends and offer contemporary suggestions of great refinement. Subsequently from graduating from the Domus Academy in Milan, she began her career with Ettore Sottsass before becoming a founding partner of the Koz+Susani Design studio in Chicago, started with Marco Susani. For 1400° Mitterteich, a brand from Mitterteich that boasts over 120 years of porcelain tradition, she takes care of the artistic direction and design of the products.
  • We have chosen it because…  It's a sophisticated contemporary collection (or rather six) with a bold aesthetic sophisticated, that captures in a few simple shapes the elegance and excellence of style and material. Although with a strong visual impact, this is an understated tableware set in pure white, expression of its quality. Besides it transforming tablescaping into a real form of art.
