05-02-2019COSTA NOVA announces two signature-collections for the hospitality sector at Ambiente, in Frankfurt
The Portuguese brand of fine stoneware, recognized throughout the Retail sector for the quality of its tableware and accessories, begins the year 2019 with the aim of increasing its presence in the hospitality industry through the introduction of two exclusive collections for this market.
Developed in partnership with renowned German Designer Carsten Gollnick, NOTOS is a tableware collection designed exclusively for professionals in the hospitality sector, inspired by the remarkable color contrasts and structures of the Portuguese Atlantic coast. Textured ceramic forms of pure and flowing lines are combined with metallic structures and organic materials such as cork and wood in a palette of light and dark tones that represent the contrasting colors of the coastal landscape. From this boarder between the water and the land, the German designer has developed a collection of tableware perfect not only for presenting dishes with this coastal theme but also for the presentation of gastronomic experiences of various cuisines and cultures.
The RODA collection was created by the Portuguese designer Torres Euracini, and is inspired by the "Circle of Friends". Naming the author, this collection aims to "bring everyone together at the table... in a circle of friends, we awaken the delight of meeting flavors, experiences and stories of companionship made of emotions and shared memories. Time well spent with moments of pure happiness and culinary delights… the next dish follows; the next story comes.” All the pieces of this collection are produced in the best and most resistant stoneware and have special and organic shapes suitable for the demanding hospitality use due to its high level of resistance and performance. The five visual variants of RODA offer a wide range of possibilities to accommodate the best flavors of all seasons, masterfully created by the artists of fine dining and subtle taste. Fish and seafood dishes, meat and vegetables, among others dishes, find in this collection a special support for the irreverent success of the innovation and detail of the great chefs.
At COSTA NOVA, we create our tableware collections with the same passion and motivation as Chefs and caterers create their culinary masterpieces. The unique characteristics of our fine stoneware products, combined with its original design, functionality and durability make our brand a reference in the gastronomy segment, with customers located in over 50 countries around the world. These new collections aim to provide professionals in this industry with an efficient experience of performance and aesthetics at the highest level.
