The soft organic forms of Robin Platt and Cairn Young's ‘Spirit’ collection for Rosenthal inspired two successive tableware ranges: 'Free Spirit' and 'A La Carte'. For the ‘Free Spirit’ range, the components were designed to be combined and used flexibly. ‘A la Carte’ further developed the concept by offering a varied range of innovative shapes. Clients could select from them to create an eye-catching ‘landscape’ when set for use.
