Nymphenburg

Description

New York-based esteemed artist, Ted Muehling has been designing a variety of collections and objects for Porzellan Manufaktur Nymphenburg since 1999. The vases, lanterns, and candlesticks he has designed are largely inspired by and shaped after corals, leaves, branches, and, in this case, coral.

Ted Muehling also created the iconic Volute Bowl for the porcelain manufacturers, which has become the trophy for the "Prix du Design" awarded annually by Monaco’s Highness Prince Albert II and Bavaria’s Highness Prince Leopold to the most beautiful yacht at the Monaco Yacht Show.

Muehling has been designing jewelry and objects inspired by natural shapes since 1976. "I try to restrict my vocabulary of shape by abstracting forms from nature and transforming them with the aim of creating objects that function just as well as they look. My designs trace the invisible shapes that exist between nature and our perception of it." Today, Ted Muehling’s work may be found in numerous private and public collections.

Ted Muehling

Ted Muehling was born in New Jersey in 1953. In 1975, he earned a degree in industrial design from the Pratt Institute in New York, where his mentors included designers Gerald Gulotta, Rowena Reed, and William Fogler. Since 1976, Muehling has been designing jewelry and decorative objects.

In 1990, Muehling opened his first shop on the edge of Soho in Manhattan, where he designs and produces multiples as well as one-of-a-kind pieces. Muehling has collaborated on designs with Porzellan-Manufaktur Nymphenburg, E. R. Butler & Co., Steuben Glass, J. & L. Lobmeyr and Wiener Silber Manufactur—the large majority of which are available at Les Ateliers Courbet.

 Muehling’s honors include two Coty American Fashion Critics’ Awards in 1977 and in 1982. He was a finalist in the first annual National Design Award competition offered by the Smithsonian’s Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum in 1997, and he was the recipient of the Chrysler Design Award in 2000, and the Pratt Institute Alumni Achievement Award in 2012.
