The Nymphenburg Porcelain Manufactory, manufacturer of Nymphenburg porcelain, is situated next to the Nymphenburg Palace in Munich, capital of Bavaria, and since the mid-eighteenth century has been manufacturing porcelain of high artistic value.

In Nymphenburg, handmade porcelain objects and works of art are manufactured according to the concepts of contemporary designers and artists who count among some of the most widely-renowned creators of art worldwide. Well-known designers like Konstantin Grcic, Hella Jongerius, Reed Kram and Clemens Weisshaar, fashion designers like Christian Lacroix, Vivienne Westwood and Gareth Pugh, and artists like Carsten Höller, Olaf Nicolai and Wim Delvoye focus intensely on the historical and cultural context of Nymphenburg and express their outstanding artistic visions in the highest quality porcelain. The character-shaping creative relevance of the work owes to the close collaboration between the artists and the masters’ workshops of Nymphenburg. In this last pure manufactory in the world, each of the porcelain parts is still worked by hand with techniques being applied which have been passed down from generation to generation and held onto since 1747.
