Villeroy & Boch USA Inc's Food Service Division is proud to be a part of the 2019 National Restaurant Association Show, and is set to debut a variety of new collections at the upcoming trade fair.
The Rock Collection: Add a Slate-Like Look to the Table
Among the newest of these collections is The Rock. The Rock collection from Villeroy & Boch combines premium porcelain with high-quality craftsmanship inspired by natural materials with strong color accents. Available in The Rock Black Shale and The Rock White Glacier, this collection offers a look that resembles natural slate, thanks to a light glaze that's added over the porcelain to give the pieces that rustic, from-nature look. The Rock Black Shale resembles natural slate, offering a deep midnight black backdrop for your culinary creations, while The Rock White Glacier offers a crisp white slate-like culinary stage.
Copper Glow: An Elegant Fine Dining Collection in a Modern Copper Look
The color copper is an enduring trend. From fashion to interior or product design, copper's subtle sheen adds expressive highlights. The new Copper Glow collection from Villeroy & Boch is crafted in an original dark coppery-red shade, using an exclusive innovative surface finish CoverSeal®. Though it has a metallic appearance, the Copper Glow collection doesn't include any metal components therefore, the collection is both dishwasher- and microwave-safe. Copper Glow sets an impressive stage for culinary creations and becomes a highlight in its own right on any table.
The Copper Glow collection differs slightly in color from natural copper. This darker hue and infusion of red gives the tableware an exceptionally elegant appearance. The result is a very fine swirl effect that emphasizes the collection's elegant look and distinctive character. The brilliant CoverSeal® finish is abrasion-resistant and extremely durable.
The decorative options available in this collection include pieces that feature the copper finish over the entire surface of the coupe areas, as well as pieces with broad panel area designs that contract with the brilliant white of the premium porcelain. Depending on the dish or desired design effect, the plate can take more of a supporting role or provide a striking showcase for culinary creations. The pieces in the Copper Glow collection are the perfect accents to white porcelain dinner services and pair perfectly with pieces from the brand new The Rock collection.
Artesano Ocean: A Kaleidoscope of Colors Inspired by the Changing Tides
The breath-taking kaleidoscope of ocean colors captivates like no other natural phenomena--cool blue shades are refreshing, while warm turquoise entices you into the water. Inspired by nature's bold colors, Villeroy & Boch created the Artesano Ocean collection in expressive colors of Atlantic Blue and Pacific Green.
The Artesano Ocean decor features concentric circles that have a calming and harmonious effect, much like the rippling tide. Artesano Ocean is completely painted by hand, with the exception of the plate rims as they are protected by a transparent, delicate glaze; their crisp white contrasts beautifully against the bold cobalt blue and turquoise colors. The manual application of the rough, structural glaze colors gives Artesano Ocean a very artisanal feel, underlining the original character and award-winning shape of the Artesano collection.
The mugs in this collection are decorated with just a light splash of color, painted on the inside rim of the white mugs. The Artesano Ocean collection pairs perfectly with pieces from our Artesano collection, providing chefs with plenty of freedom to place their own stamp on their culinary creations--all thanks to the collection's simplistic design. Additionally, the Artesano Ocean collection pairs perfectly with the pieces made of acacia wood, cork, and glass from our Artesano collection. All pieces in the Artesano Ocean collection are dishwasher- and microwave-safe, and because the collection is painted by hand, each piece is unique in its own right.
Algo: Tableware Inspired by the Art of Basketry
Algo is the new collection from the Villeroy & Boch Food Service Division that has been inspired by the art of basketry. Traditionally hand-woven from grasses and colorful ribbons, these accessories have a simple, clear design for everyday use. The wide variety of patterns were embraced, given a minimalist twist then transferred to porcelain in soft colors for the Algo collection. The result is a finely detailed design, with small lines in clear, geometric patterns that come together to create a harmonious overall picture--producing a dynamic effect on the surface of the round plates and bowls.
Algo is available in two subtle color options on a white background: Blue, a fine light blue, and Maroon, a soft beige/brown. Thanks to its ethnic look, Algo is perfect for casual dining atmospheres. It allows chefs to showcase their food on an understates yet expressive stage. All pieces in the Algo collection are dishwasher- and microwave-safe.
To see these brand new Villeroy & Boch collections first-hand, be sure to visit booth #6628 at the National Restaurant Association Show taking place at the McCormick Center in Chicago from May 18-21.
