The public tour of the KPM exhibition provides an overview of the history of KPM and porcelain production from the time of Frederick the Great to the present day. The timeline begins with the discovery of porcelain and the reign of ‘Old Fritz’. You will learn about the development of porcelain art and the history of KPM itself.
A highlight of the exhibition is the visit to the Historische Ringkammerofenhalle (Historic Kiln Hall) where porcelain was fired until the 1960s. Here you will also learn about the individual stages of production, from the preparation of the liquid clay to shaping, firing and ultimately painting. Visitors are actively encouraged to touch the exhibits.
In addition, there is the opportunity to look over the shoulder of a porcelain painter as she decorates selected pieces and answers questions on the fine art of porcelain painting.
Then it’s on to our Modern Living area. This gives an overview of KPM today, with the latest innovative KPM creations and collaborative undertakings with various partners and artists on display. These include one of the latest Birkenstock models created in partnership with KPM, a model of the Bugatti Veyron l’Or Blanc (the “fastest porcelain in the world”), and KPM LAB porcelain for the kitchen, which has been developed from laboratory-standard porcelains.
The tour then proceeds via the Boccherini Saal, complete with festively laid table, to our KPM DIY. Here you will learn everything about the production of our porcelain, from the raw clay to the finished cup. What materials are used in the manufacture of porcelain? How does kaolin feel to the touch? How is a plaster mould formed? Touching is not only allowed here – it is actively encouraged!
Last on the itinerary is our model cellar. Approximately 150,000 porcelain moulds and models are stored here. The individual KPM designers are on show.
We recommend that you round off your visit to KPM in the KPM Café and browse around our Flagship Store.
