The products from BlueD1653 are designed by Dutch guild masters from the 21st century: famous Dutch designers. They create and develop new products and are inspired by the master painters at Royal Delft. The collaboration leads to products with a distinct character; Delft Blue meets Dutch design. Dutch tiles are iconic for Delftware and have been around for hundreds of years. Designer Damian O’Sullivan: Today, however, they’ve lost some of their lustre and have been prone to very kitsch interpretations. With the Versatiles, I wanted to bring back the tile and felt that as a serving platter (for sushi or tapas) they justified their use. The square is present in each of the three designs in a subtle nudge/wink to the past.
