About

Handcrafted earthenware for your table. Designed in Germany, produced in Portugal.

We want to use our Kickstarter campaign to launch a series of accessories that will combine our experience and our passion. Hand-crafted articles.

Well-made, hand-crafted articles are important to us. For us, a perfect product has a soul. When you touch a hand-crafted product, you can feel how much skill and love the artisan has put into it. At 4rooms we don’t only focus on the function and appearance of our products; we are also interested in how they feel when they are in your home. 

We have decided to devote our first joint series of products to the dining table. For us, a beautifully-laid table is the focal point of every home. Eating together means much more than simply sharing food. The dining table is a place where we come together, where we exchange thoughts, ideas, feelings and emotions. It is a place where we can consciously enjoy life, where we can recover, chill out and take a moment to catch our breath. Would you sometimes like to capture moments like these? 

If you hold the bowls from our series zero in your hand you will feel a tiny indentation. It is only as big as a thumbprint. This indentation is your pause button. Your oasis of calm and tranquillity in a busy world.

Sustainability: The products in our series zero are made of earthenware that comes from Portugal. In a small Portuguese studio, the pots are thrown by hand on the potter’s wheel. For the glaze we have chosen simple colours so that the products will look just as good in years to come as they do when you first unwrap them. Light grey, white and dark grey. Espresso cup, dessert bowl, Buddha bowl... The bowls, plates and cups are available in different sizes and can be put to many different uses. Our ceramics will provide the perfect stage for the food you serve.

Every vessel, every bowl, every cup also contains a little surprise. We call it the ‘plus’. Because for us a perfect product doesn’t end with its manufacture. We want to give you more. Even as you are unwrapping the bowl we want you to feel it: Make yourself at home. We want to use our Kickstarter campaign to fund the production of our first series. With your help and support we can produce a perfect product, a hand-crafted product made with a great deal of love. We want to design additional accessories for every room in the home and have them delivered to your home, comfortably and conveniently, via our online shop. Kitchen, Bathroom, Living Room & Bedroom. We have ambitious plans. Please support us!

We are Corinna and Sally, two designers from the Rhineland region of Germany.

We have both been working independently for many years for various companies. Our roots are in handicrafts. This love for hand-made objects gives us a close connection to one another. Sally is a master goldsmith and graduated from the HS Düsseldorf with an MA in Applied Art and Design. Before studying product design in Aachen Corinna trained as a glass engraver. 

Since January 2018 we have been working together on our products for 4rooms and are already looking forward to the new tableware.

Only half an hour from Porto, Portugal, are our makers. The guys working on the pottery wheels are José, José and Dario. But who is the the third José? He is the boss of the company.

For us, Portugal is simply unbeatable with its wide coastal landscapes and rugged, often still unspoiled, nature. In small idyllic villages, vases, pots and plates made of clay are still made by hand. We have chosen one of these beautiful Portuguese manufactories and have our vessels turned on the potter's wheel in a classic way. For centuries the good clay quality has been used there to make jugs and cups. To this day, the soil contains many minerals that make the clay particularly resistant and easy to process. We are overwhelmed that here everything is still done by hand: From the twisted form to the glaze. 

Real manual work instead of assembly line production.  

No piece looks exactly the same. Everything is produced in small quantities, so every cup and bowl in our zero series has its own character.

We have put together 7 reward sets for you. Find out what you would like to support us with. Our tableware is available in 3 different colours.

It took us 10 months to get here. After all, developing a new idea and bringing it to life is never easy. Once we get the funds from Kickstarter and your email with your order, we can focus on production. January 2019 is the date we expect to ship. Our partner is DPD so once we dispatch your parcel from Germany delivery time will depend on the country to which we are shipping your parcel.

Risks and challenges

On the way to a new product there can always be small difficulties and delays. We make every effort to do everything according to plan. We have a great team around us that we can rely on. Should there be any delays, we will inform you here.
If there are changes we will show photos here to keep you up to date and let you be involved.
