Nymphenburg

NYMPHENBURG  is the porcelain manufactory of the Bavarian crown.

The noble art of porcelain-making has been cultivated here since its founding in 1747. Even now, manufacture means in Nymphenburg what it always did – completely handmade, using techniques passed on and preserved from generation to generation. This is the only way to assure the unrivaled fineness, subtlety and brilliance of porcelain that Nymphenburg’s global reputation is based on. 

The manufactory’s master workshops produce avant-garde designs for four centuries, created right up to the present day by the most distinguished artists, designers and architects of their days. 

The repertoire of jewelry from Porzellan Manufaktur Nymphenburg can be traced back to the 18th century. So-called gallantries, small porcelain gifts such as hair pins, cases and medallions were exchanged between ladies and cavaliers to show their mutual respect. 

Around 1870, goldsmiths started buying whole sets of porcelain plates in various sizes from Nymphenburg for broaches and earrings. A century later a collection of finely finished lockets was created with historical flower décor. 

Today Porzellan Manufaktur Nymphenburg still invites designers of international acclaim to develop new creations. For his ESSENTIALS collections Patrik Muff has designed pieces of jewelry featuring strong, partly sacred symbols with clear imagery using cross and skull motifs, flaming hearts and lilies. 

All the collections are completely handcrafted using traditional manufacturing techniques with superb designs. 

Since 1991 he has been represented by internationally renowned galleries, jewelers and fashion stores. In addition to his own collections he has produced project work with well-known artists and fashion houses such as Jenny Holzer (1994), Strellson (1999), Schiesser Revival (2004) and Puma (2006). In 2008 he created the “Essentials” jewelry line for Nymphenburg. Patrik Muff  took his inspiration for the collection from historical Nymphenburg designs such as Franz Ignaz Günther’s skull dating from around 1756. Strong sacred symbols expressed in clear imagery – characteristic of the work of the designer who currently lives in Munich.
