Perching Bird Emil Figure in White Biscuit Porcelain by Nymphenburg

Estimated Production Time2-3 weeks

About

Designer Ted Muehling chose this bird — "Emil" — from the Nymphenburg figure repertoire and reinterpreted it, the branch clip made from blackened metal adds a new design element to the bird sculpture created in 1912 by Theodor Kärner. The white bisque porcelain and the matte black create a harmonious contrast, as do the richly detailed figure of the bird and the subtly minimalist shape of the clip. Its clear redesign and decorative clip make the robin a fresh accessory for spring. With this reinterpretation, Ted Muehling is continuing into the 21st century the series of contemporary figures drawing on the Nymphenburg archive and rediscovering historical designs. So far contemporary artists and designers such as Wim Delvoye, Hella Jongerius, and Carsten Höller have already engaged in dialogue with Nymphenburg’s treasure Trove of forms and given a new look to selected pieces. Material: White Biscuit Porcelain.
