By firing the clay at too high a temperature, each element deforms slightly. The imperfect set of tableware is one of the first designs in which individuality is created within serial production, an important theme in Jongerius’ work. B-Set was the first porcelain to be produced by Royal Tichelaar Makkum (until 1999 the company had focused only on earthenware and stoneware). B-Set also marks the start of the company’s contemporary design collection, and of its close collaboration with Jongerius.
