Ichendorf company history began back in the early years of the twentieth century in a small town near Cologne, named Quadrath-Ichendorf. There, many master-glaziers used a mix of substances, among which was silica, to give shape to objects able to meet the refined taste of that period. A stylistic code defined by precious ornaments, which had the undiscussed leading role of the collections proposed up until the fifties of the past century, when a very important change is established: to favor clean shape and purity of material. Old form and adornment were abolished, in an endless search for new, popular and no longer exclusive appearances which lead to the creation of modern designed objects. In 1990 Ichendorf style center was established in Milan, a creative point of convergence of artists and designers. Artists and designers come in contact with the very heart of the material, to combine different signs in a single poetic shape, able to enclose a continuous search for details, always respecting history and the master-glaziers’ expertise. It’s a very long meticulous collaboration work, which guarantees the longevity of Ichendorf objects in time. The materials used range from stoneware, introduced in 2019, to traditional glass, crystal and borosilicate, with a process guided by ancient knowledge.
