The latest issue of Tableware International – our first of 2023 – is online now. We celebrate the return of Ambiente, learn about new launches from the global industry AND later this week we will also announce the finalists of our Tableware International Awards of Excellence 2023.
So, what can you expect to find in our magazine?
We shine a spotlight on all that is happening in the tableware industry from trends to new launches to the return of trade shows as we once knew them.
We also talk to Zwiesel Glas’ head of marketing, communications and product, Michael Eichinger, who tells us about the company’s stellar year which included new brand launches in the HoReCa sector with United Tables, record revenue, a 150-year anniversary, and a merger with Fortessa. Read what he has to say on page 32.
From page 36, we look at new products and collections which are launching for the new quarter – you’ll find brands such as Narumi, LSA International, Denby (who showcase their eagerly-awaited porcelain assortment) through to Robbe & Berking.
Trends, too, come into focus – Pantone’s colour of the year for 2023 is viva magenta and you’ll find pieces which fit that bill on page 56.
Meanwhile, our friends at Francéclat give us insight into trends they have identified for spring 2023 on page 30 – hint, it’s bright! We also take a look at some lovely blue pieces on page 134 – blue never seems to lose its appeal and this year is no different.
This issue is also brimming with industry news, Arta Broch, for example, tell us about their collaboration with New York-based designer Barry Goralnick on page 70. Creative director at glassmaker Orrefors, David Carlson, gives us insight into the brand as it marks 125 years in 2023. You’ll find that on page 72. Meanwhile, Steelite are on page 52 with VP design, Andrew Klimecki talking about how he sets about creating for the hospitality industry.
And we hear from French tableware companies who tell us about how they are doing business on page 62. All this and more too.
The Tableware International Awards of Excellence will be held Sunday 5 February from 6pm at the HoReCa Academy, Hall 11.0. All welcome!
