Kahler Omaggio Bowls
In 1839, Herman Kähler took over an old pottery studio in Nastved, Denmark, which became the groundwork for one of the greatest successes in Danish ceramic history. With handicraft experience passed down through generations and great insight into the versatile molding potential of clay, Kähler has now been at the cutting edge of Danish ceramic art for more than one hundred years.
As an homage to Kähler and the demands of ceramics for form and precision, the two designers Ditte Reckweg and Jelena Schou Nordentoft have reinterpreted classic raw stripes. With coarse brush strokes and a modern shape, they have created the Omaggio bowls, a unique and bold impression of the times.

About The Designer
Kähler is a brand of Nordic tradition that began in a small workshop in Næstved more than 175 years ago. Gaining much appreciation at the 1889 World Exhibition in Paris, the Kähler workshop became a meeting place for great Danish artists such as Thorvald Bindesbøll, Svend Hammerchøi and Kai Neilson. The legendary workshop began in 1839, but it wasn’t until the owner’s son, Herman A. Kähler, took over the shop in 1875 that the workshop became a well-known producer of ceramic art pieces. With nearly 200 years of ceramic mastery, the company still produces objects of the highest quality and commitment to Nordic traditions.
