Design for Royal Delft

Blue D1653 brings together design of different eras in one collection. The name Blue D1653 comes from Blue for Delftware, 1653 for the founding year of Royal Delft and D for design. Designed by Damian O’Sullivan, Arian Brekveld & Chris Koens with Master Painters Caroline Hartman, Simon van Oosten & Paul Bartels.

With the new Blue D1653 collection Royal Delft combines the classical trade of the Master Painters with the power of modern design. Call it a meeting between the present day and history, expressed in a collection of decorative objects and consumer products for food, mood & lifestyle.

Royal Delft was established in 1653 and is the only remaining producer in Delft from the 17th century. In the product range tradition is the binding factor. Through the introduction of Blue D1653, Royal Delft shows that, in addition to tradition, innovation also comes from Delft;  longstanding tradition infused with a joyful look towards our contemporary lifestyle.
