Article in italian ddn magazine

One more nice article in an italian magazine ddn that sums up the biggest fairs in 2009, amongst others the talent-show at the ambiente fair in Frankfurt 02/09. Abstract:

“For the Talents, design is everything: for Nina Kappenstein it means visualizing an idea, a concept and a content, a story that the object tells before displaying its form. Problems and actions of daily life, tragic or simply commonplace events, but totally there. Her dTales porcelain pieces are conscious of mass production, eating habits and globalization. But they are subtle, understated, with minor details that generally do not attract attention, but in this case determine the project.”

Article in form magazine

A nice surprise, when I detected the dTales collection
in the design-magazine form:

“Political porcelaine. At first glance the porcelaine service ”almost.traditional” looks like classic british tableware. But the plates and cups in the “dTales” series only seemingly appear to suit a conservative tea-time setting. If you look closely, their political message unfolds: Beside contemplative country estates trucks plough through the forest, aircrafts criss- cross the sky an at the castle door a fast food chain sign dazzles - product designer Nina Kappenstein has enigmatically planted the symbols of consumerism in the idyll. The devil is to befound, as ever, in the details.
