This hotel service is exclusively designed for Mercure Hotels the Netherlands. The service is stackable and multifunctional. The requirements for a hotel service are embraced in the design. For example, serving is made easy by the shape and higher edges on the plates. Clients love the massive character of the hotel service, and they can choose among different colour nuances and a colour gradient. Thus, the service is at its best when presented in abundance.
Extremely strong, practical and beautiful
“The special feature of the cup and saucer is that the cup falls into the saucer as it were and cannot slide on it. This practical design gives the service a characteristic shape. Mieke proves with this service that hotel porcelain can be extremely strong, practical and beautiful at the same time.” Mercure Hotels - Jury report
