TAC 02 was created from Walter Gropius' unedited original designs. Purist design, based on simple geometric shapes, lends "TAC" a timeless poetry. Delicate ornamentation and stark black and white contrasts on finest, slightly translucent porcelain emphasize the outstanding design features of this icon of Bauhaus design. TAC 02 offers a dinnerware, stemware and tea service collection.
Sleek, modernist, and beautiful in its minimalism, Rosenthal TAC 02 tableware brings Bauhaus architectural design to the contemporary table. Taking its styling from the drawings of Bauhaus founder Walter Gropius and its name from his firm's acronym, the pattern combines premium white porcelain and brilliantly clear glass for a clean, uncluttered look. The rounded silhouettes are streamlined and spare with understated accent angles that add attractive vigor. Perfect for entertaining or elegant everyday use, TAC 02 is ideal tableware for the urban sensibility.
One of the most memorable pieces in the TAC 02 collection, this handled sugar bowl is visually witty and unmistakably stylish. Seamless in profile, the piece's lid and body form a pleasing dome, while the forefinger handle sweeps up and around like a tidy little tailfin. A perfect match for the rest of the TAC 02 tea service, the sugar bowl holds 7 ounces and is safe in the dishwasher. A matching creamer is also available. --Emily Bedard
