    SIEGER by FÜRSTENBERG

    A successful brand partnership: thinking creatively and bringing skills together – FÜRSTENBERG’s cooperation with sieger design shows how this can be a way forward. The two companies founded the SIEGER by FÜRSTENBERG brand in 2005 that has established itself internationally with contemporary and striking designs.

    Personal creations

    SIEGER by FÜRSTENBERG combines the knowledge and personal styles of Michael Sieger, the designer, and his brother Christian, manager of the SIEGER brand, with the perfection of FÜRSTENBERG’s porcelain manufacture.

     

    Michael Sieger describes the philosophy behind his porcelain design as follows: “We believe that people today are in search of luxury for everyday use, but without foregoing a high level of functionality.”

     

    “Our porcelain invites people to stay a while. With families at home or in exclusive hotels – wherever people want to enjoy the good life”, Christian Sieger adds.

     

    Design for daily life

    The findings of extensive research into the history of a product and international habits often provide decisive inspiration. Nowadays, who needs tableware that is not dishwasher safe or cannot be used for different occasions? Collections such as MY CHINA! or SEVEN, in which all of the pieces harmonise and can be combined with one another, will meet the demands of today and tomorrow.

     

    A basic tenet for the Sieger brothers is to demand the obviously impossible in order to achieve the feasible. The drive for perfection and absolutely coherent results is evident throughout the entire design process.

     

    Every new creation matures for months, sometimes for years. Aesthetics and functionality are repeatedly called into question, and the same holds true for the feel of the individual items. 3D prototypes – whether digitally printed or lavishly produced in their own model workshop – support this process.

    With products that are beautiful and highly functional at the same time, we want to enrich people’s lives in their homes.

    Unique craftsmanship

    Every single cup, every plate and every accessory is a one-off the individual production of which calls for a large series of steps – taking up to 100 hands and six weeks from start to finish.

     

    Quality like this can only be achieved through the expertise, precision and passion of a manufactory with centuries of experience. Founded in 1747, FÜRSTENBERG combines unique craftsmanship with state-of-the-art technology to produce the sophisticated collections of SIEGER by FÜRSTENBERG.

     

    The uncompromising demands for extremely thin-walled porcelain in particular call for exceptional skills. This outstanding quality of the body of the porcelain and the precision of fit are possible thanks to the knowledge of a manufactory with a history spanning more than 270 years.

     

    This is what makes the partnership between SIEGER and FÜRSTENBERG stand out to this day: if a particular solution is not immediately apparent, it is revised together in a spirit of passion and openness for innovation.

     

    Hand-made with sensitivity

    Porcelain design by SIEGER

    The inspiring Harkotten Castle is home to SIEGER and the head office of the sieger design agency.

     

    First established in 1964 as an architectural firm, brothers Christian and Michael Sieger are now in charge of this family business in its second generation. A team approximately 40 members strong reflects the entire design process in an interdisciplinary manner. For this purpose, people from a variety of disciplines – designers, art directors, communication scientists, business administrators – work together across teams. The company head office at Harkotten Castle is a cultural treasure and a creative workshop at the same time – a historical complex with a modern sculpture park that also manifests the company’s aesthetic claim.

     

    The unique porcelain collections are created in close collaboration, and are in use today in private flats or yachts as well as in various 5-star hotels and restaurants.

    We are very proud of the inspiring collaboration and the fabulous products we have been able to launch on the market together in recent years.
