MUNRO INTRODUCES V&A MUSEUM LINE.

FRANKFURT, Germany-British designer Nick Munro introduced his Inspired by the V&A collection at the Spode showroom during Ambiente here last week. Munro was commissioned by the Victoria & Albert Museum in London to create a tabletop line that interprets the spirit of the Art Deco period based on the museum's Art Deco collection.

The collection, which was developed using the skills and industrial resources of Spode and with the help of a V&A team, includes a teapot, cup and saucer, mug, cream jug, sugar bowl, egg cup, sundae dish, large-scale fruit bowl, vase and jug in bone china. Munro also designed a metal and glass barware line that includes a cocktail shaker and etched stemware.

"My hope is that when someone picks up and holds one of my new designs, they will feel a touch of the excitement and glamour of the period that inspired them," said Munro of his new collection.
