Bauscher's new ENJOY COLORS has five decors, including new "EFFECTS" shown here.
new ENJOY range now includes plates with narrow rims
in four sizes and new soup bowls
, providing restaurateurs with even more options for presenting their culinary creations in a highly individual and versatile way. Bauscher
will also introduce “ENJOY COLORS”, five new decorating ideas
that show the variety of the collection.
Since its launch in 2010, ENJOY has been very popular with hotels and restaurants as well as professional caterers. The collection’s design, inspired by the natural curves of a delicate necklace, has been nominated for the 2013 German Design Award.
While the existing plates from Bauscher's
original ENJOY collection, with their elegant, wide rims, are a real eye-catcher, the appeal of the new narrow-rimmed plates is their especially large surface area, making them the perfect addition to the ENJOY range and offers a wide variety of options for food presentation. Bauscher
is demonstrating the versatility of the ENJOY collection with five new décor
innovations. ENJOY COLORS new decors allow something for every restaurant menu and ambiance:
• The fine lines of the Effects
design produce a three-dimensional impression, blending into the rim and underlining its soft curve in the third dimension.
• The mosaic-like Country Style
décor opens up different gastronomic backdrops depending on the color scheme. Red, for example, suits the contemporary country house style, while gray conveys understated elegance.
brings a sophisticated highlight to any table setting. The grainy, mesh-like pattern produces a deceptively realistic effect that evokes high- quality leather.
• The floral pattern of Modern Romance
has a loosely scattered effect. The interplay of the colors lends the stylized flower pattern, with its silhouette-style blooms, a special charm – ideal for cuisine that is inventive and light.
• With its vibrant and contemporary hues, the Block Colors
range reawakens the pleasure of dining. Whether used for flamboyant individual pieces, or in combination with different shades or patterns, this intensive color range brings great vitality to the table.

To celebrate its 150th anniversary, famed French porcelain maker Bernardaud reached out to various artists around the world to create their vision of the company. Paris artist Sarkis created the KINTSUGI design.
Founded in 1863, Bernardaud
is the premier manufacturer of fine Limoges porcelain and proudly benefits from five generations of familial leadership. The company creates hotel and restaurant collections that bear in mind the operational constraints of luxury hotel and restaurants. The hallmark of Bernardaud
is its commitment that every hotel and restaurant product is made to exacting quality standards that offer unmatched durability and creativity in design. Bernardaud
recurrently partners with artists, designers, and chefs in the production of hospitality collections that are imbued with unrivaled beauty and luminosity. The company specializes in custom-order services and its collections are used by top-tier hotel and restaurant properties throughout the world.
To celebrate its 150 years anniversary, Bernardaud
has gone to meet the world of art by asking moviemakers, photographers and artists to bring their view of the company’s work and its image. It shows a three-part exhibition that shows how porcelain is present, living, luminous, sensual and inspiring.
Among the artists chosen by Bernardaud
is the Paris-based Sarkis, who described his inspiration for the project this way:
“I had two sources of inspiration for the Kintsugi service. First, what if I held a dinner for 12 very different guests... would they get along? Second, I am fascinated by a 16th-century Japanese technique known as Kintsugi. The idea is to make visible repairs in fired ceramic using a mix of lacquer and gold, which increases the esthetic value. One might call it "the archeology of the future"! In other words, even if many copies of a plate exist, what counts is the original unit. Each plate is unique, because I made different repairs on each one, as if it were a precious ancient object. Like an archeologist adding value to objects that are found.
In the workshops in Limoges, I worked like a calligrapher, highly concentrated, and did all 12 plates in the same sitting. Inspiration struck like lightning."
Bernardaud's KINTSUGI, designed by Sarkis, is sold as a set of 12 individually designed dinner plates.
, a French artist of Armenian origin, was born in Istanbul in 1938 and studied painting and interior architecture before moving to France in 1964. In 1967, he won the prize for painting awarded at the Paris Biennal. In 1969, he was invited by the great art critic Harald Szeermann to take part in an exhibition When Attitudes Become Form, which has been famous ever since:
"My work is always related to memory. Everything that I have experienced in my life is in it. "
For more than 35 years, Sarkis
has been imagining scenes constructed from stories inspired as much by a sense of place - memories inherent to particular places - as his own personal memories. He uses a variety of media (e.g. watercolors, video and sculpture) and materials (e.g. neon, magnetic tape and copper) and confronts objects from different contexts or cultures. This has given his body of work a unique poetic dimension that reveals a profound humanism and a great familiarity with world history. Sarkis has exhibited at many international exhibitions such as the Pompidou Center (Paris), Boymans Museum (Rotterdam), San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, and the Museum of Contemporary Art (Geneva).
His work is held in many public and private collections. He has been living and working in Paris since 1964.

There’s no limit to what foodservice professionals can expect from the new Seltmann
NO LIMITS line of white porcelain tableware from Frieling USA
. Made in Germany to the highest quality standards, the full range features 49 different round and square pieces that are modular and compatible, so each item can be used individually or combined with others in the line.
Matching platters can double as lid covers that protect food and make the pieces stackable. Saucers can cover cups, and platters and plates of various sizes and shapes can cover any piece in the line. With the look of contemporary simplicity that serves as a backdrop to today’s cuisine, the bowls and cups are slightly angled upward, so plates fit perfectly under or over them.
NO LIMITS is oven, microwave, refrigerator and dishwasher safe. This sturdy tableware can be used indoors or outdoors, and can even withstand the high heat of salamander broiler ovens, eliminating the need to transfer food to a different plate for finishing gratin potatoes, macaroni and cheese and more. Seltmann’s
porcelain has excellent heat storing capability, slowly releasing heat after preheating to keep food warm. The centers of the plates are thicker than the rims to store even more heat.
Stronger, lighter and more translucent, Seltmann's
NO LIMITS porcelain is composed of an ideal formula of 50% Caolin, 25% Quartz and 25% Feldspar. It is completely lead free and cadmium free, meeting strict California regulations. It is twice fired with eco-friendly natural gas for extreme hardness and durability.
The extremely hard glaze of the fully vitrified NO LIMITS line – which ranks above metal, bone china and fine china on the Mohs scale of hardness – prevents scratching by knives or flatware. It resists breaking and chipping because of its rolled edges and material hardness. Unglazed feet are diamond polished three times to prevent scratching of wood or glass tables or other china, and leveling prevents liquids from running on the plate.
NO LIMITS line from Frieling
includes a variety of bowls, platters, plates, cups, saucers and serving items, including a 40 ounce coffee pot, sugar bowl, creamer, pitcher, gravy boat and salt and pepper set. List prices range from $10 to $70.
has been family owned for more than 100 years, with an ongoing commitment to investing in state-of-the-art technologies. Frieling USA

has launched new additions to its contemporary GLIDE collection. The collection which was originally launched late last year has proven incredibly versatile in use with establishments layering items and using the sloped serving bowls in other areas such as buffets and deli-displays.
The key range is now extended to include three sizes of rectangular plates. Designed to fit with the square items already in the range there are plenty of options for presenting food to the table and for the accompanying side dishes. The sculptured curved edges add an instant modern feel, while a very flat center assists creativity in presentation.
Consideration, as with all Churchill
ranges, has been given to the practicality ‘in-use’
and each piece has been rigorously tested for durability, stackability for back of house and items are deliberately light-weight. Vanessa Carter – Churchill’s Head of New Product Development
commented, “We are really excited about GLIDE, it is a very contemporary collection and has allowed us the opportunity to create something completely different for establishments wishing to differentiate themselves from the competition. The designs are soft, yet sculptured in a way which enhances the presentation and visual appeal of all types of food. By enabling layering of the different sizes of plates there is an opportunity for adding value through presentation. It also fits in with the trend for combination dishes and smaller tapas style dining.”
The full collection also features a number of serving bowls and dishes of different shapes.
