Porzellan Manufaktur Nymphenburg has been handcrafting the finest porcelain for 260 years. In the spirit of the company's beginnings, it is again internationally recognized designers and artists who are today shaping its profile: Barnaby Barford, Konstantin Grcic, Hella Jongerius, Gustavo Lins, Ted Muehling and others have in recent years presented pioneering creations for contemporary porcelain design. Nymphenburg is one of the last companies that still produces each individual item by hand; a fact that is appreciated by experts and collectors alike. Since its founding, Porzellan Manufaktur Nymphenburg has counted the international high aristocracy as well as embassies and palaces around the world among its customers. Its products have received many prizes and may be admired in the world's major design collections: the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Cooper Hewitt National Design Museum in New York, the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, the Fondation Nationale in Paris, and the Neue Sammlung at the Pinakothek der Moderne in Munich.
