"A reinterpretation of Art Nouveau through nature’s metamorphosis."
The fundament of Meissen has been rooting its designs in elegance, beauty and grace, by borrowing the “splendour sigil” which links the late Baroque to the transitive Rococo and straight towards the naturalistic Art Nouveau. Our design is inspired by the Art Nouveau methods of expression, intertwining laced, graceful, nature inspired elements. We have used a pastel colour palette composed of olive greens and peach orange. The textures tend to represent the "lace aspect" plants acquire during their decay, thus receiving a graceful immortal aspect. We chose to represent plants such as Physalis along with Water-lilies due to their given immortality.

The Meissen Porcelain Legacy has been marching steadily through the most representative art currents of the history of beaux-arts. Nature has always been enchanted in and by art, being given sumptuous representations in the 17th and 18th centuries. We have linked the nature inspired elements, which we find present in the Meissen Porcelain collections, with the Art Nouveau movement of the glorification of nature.
