Premium table setting (Review of dishware trends for HoReCa)

While finance and economics experts are trying to realise whether we have hit the peak of the crisis, the most successful HoReCa facilities are finding ways to benefit from the situation and to attract visitors. Menu novelties, interesting programmes, a compliment from the chief cook and sometimes even a revolutionary image change.
Premium table setting (Review of dishware trends for HoReCa)
Opening a new restaurant, café or hotel is always a diversified task. Table setting – tableware, sets, glasses, textiles – plays an important role in it. While recently opened facilities are equipped with modern, and therefore more fascinating from the design pont of view, dishware and tableware, some of the long-existing restaurants and cafés need to be updated. Certainly, full replacement of dishware is very rare, but it’s worth renewing at least a part of it sometimes. By the way, serving traditional dishes in a new manner, using unconventional design dishware, is one of the popular and efficient ways both to attract new clients and to retain existing visitors.

On the threshold of the InDecor exhibition (organised by ITE Group of companies), one of the leaders in the lifestyle industry, where a wide range of items and homeware, including dishware,  kitchen accessories and textiles, will be displayed, we would like to focus on some table setting novelties and help HoReCa specialists make a choice.
Fine and elegant traditional classic sets seem to be in fashion again. White china from BAUSCHER, combining solidity and functionality with a recognisable design, or elite dishware from Сhef’s collections from the Portuguese brand Vista Alegre will become a real asset for a fashionable restaurant. 


For those who like to experiment, china manufacturers offer coloured dishware. Besides, some of the new collections of this year reflect common design fashion to use “dusty” shades. Green, blue, rose, black and other colours look more interesting due to the addition of grey. One of the latest colour novelties is NEOFUSION china collection from Arabic company RAK Porcelain, including 50 items, each of which is presented in six colours. The name of the collection speaks for itself. Milk, pearl-gray, anthracite, terra-cotta and ocherous, red and scarlet dishware shades look good both in monochromic tones and combined together or with classic white china. The utilised unique baking and glazing technologies make the collection even more attractive.


Mesh new series from German company Rosenthal will suit those who prefer traditional items and those who adore innovations alike – it includes china in white and trendy shades: Aqua (blue), Cream (biscuit-coloured) and Walnut (hazel). A thin gauze-like pattern adds style to the collection.

The sooner the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro will start, the more one feels a holiday atmosphere, creating a riot of colours and compelling vibes. It looks as if this atmosphere inspired French company Revol to create its bright
COLOR LAB dishware collection, where tea and espresso cups, spoon sets, holders and china serving boards are presented in a combination of multicoloured shades: STRATUS GREY, FJORD BLUE, CELADON GREEN, CITRUS YELLOW, CAPUCINE ORANGE, AMARANTE RED. All items are handmade and have a special mark.

While some manufacturers are experimenting with colour, others are experimenting with shape. For example, plates from the New Moon collection from the French brand DEGRENNE resemble a new Moon. Multicoloured dishes from the Profi series from the German manufacturer ARZBERG are made in a shape resembling a flower or a five-point star with round corners.

The same trends can be observed in the glass production for HoReCa enterprises as in the professional serving dishware production, consisting in the experiments with colour, shape, use of innovative technologies. One of the most elegant new collections is VISION from ZIEHER, created in collaboration with the famous sommelier Silvio Nitzsche. Glasses are handmade from the material called “Crystaline”. The icing on the cake is the cup shape which looks as if it were brooding above its stem, producing a charming light refraction effect. No additional decantation is needed for wine in such glasses. The collection includes glasses of different sizes for several kinds of wines. 


Those who follow design fashion – from clothes and footwear to interior items, are not surprised by the fact that up-to-date trends move from one area to another. When looking at this year’s novelty – the Dagg vase from Rosenhal Studio-Line – the DIMPLE SUSPENSION (“niche”, ”dimple”) pendant fitting created by SLAMP unconsciously comes to mind. It looks as if its metal were melting where crystals are imbedded. In Dagg, china base and glass beads produce even a more delicate combination. It looks as if dewdrops were flowing down the vase, leaving small niches in china. Restaurant visitors can admire the flower arrangement in this vase for so long that they will enjoy their time waiting for the ordered dish. This is how designer decor contributes to the facility image leading eventually to its financial success.
