Gibson To Showcase New Tableware At Ambiente

Gibson Overseas will showcase new set compositions such as a double bowl 12-piece set and a wide range of open stock bowl and mug options at the 2018 Ambiente in Frankfurt.

The Gibson Elite 12-piece Ombre dinnerware set includes a traditional 7.25-inch bowl as well as a wider 9.25-inch dinner bowl. The Ombre set comes in a blue or chestnut colorway, and every piece features a reactive glaze finish that ensures no two pieces are alike, the company said.

The company has also developed hundreds of new mug designs that are positioned to add personalized statements to the home. The new mug designs will be featured across Gibson’s brand catalog and include everything from fun statements to bold graphics to high-end reactive glaze finishes.

“Modern dining trends have changed the items consumers now want in their tabletop assortments,” said David Nicklin, Gibson’s vp/marketing and licensing. “Gibson has tracked the journey of bowls from high-end restaurants to the everyday table. Today’s consumers love the versatility of wider, shallower bowls and they are increasingly looking to buy mugs separately from sets. Mugs continue to be a great way to add a fun and creative option to refresh their favorite tea and coffee experience, and also add a more personal touch to their tabletop assortments.”
