Suisse Langenthal latte cup 280ml and saucer set with Brazuca Coffee logo. Switzerland is not just well known for its watches and chocolate. The quality of the local porcelain is also famous as the popularity of Suisse Langenthal proves. Porcelain factory, mainly famous for the original decors of “Bopla”, was founded in 1906.
The fascinating history of the only 20th century Swiss porcelain factory began in 1906 in the Bernese town of Langenthal. Deeply rooted in the Swiss identity, the porcelain manufactory Langenthal SA – affectionately known by its workers as the “Porzi” – was noted for its cutting-edge technology, the diversity of its products as well as the quality of its porcelain. The artistic output followed the dominant aesthetic currents of the century while still preserving its local character. From Art Nouveau and Art Deco to the deliciously “vintage” designs from the 1950s and 1960s, from pseudo-rustic to avant-garde propositions, from collaborations with artists and designers to the influence of the artistic directors of the manufactory, the history of Langenthal is closely linked to the evolution of taste.
