Brief History: Rosenthal
Over 135 years an extraordinary, richly diverse company has grown in the town of Selb/Upper Franconia, that today is one of the leading suppliers worldwide for contemporary, innovative design for the tabletop, home interiors and gift areas and a range of brands with an international appeal. The company was shaped largely by the two entrepreneurial personalities privy councillor Philipp Rosenthal and his son Philip Rosenthal until well into the 1970s. The company is influenced today by the exceptionally close work with leading artists and designers from across the globe. A unique corporate culture has developed upon these foundations shaped by design and the encounter with art and culture stretching from product development to brand image and architecture to the corporate CI and the promotion of cultural projects.
