The History of the "White Gold"

On behalf of Stiftung Leuchtenburg, TRIAD Berlin developed and designed two sections for the new permanent exhibition. The task was to rediscover the history of – and fascination with – the "white gold" and to create a landmark project for the entire region of Thuringia.

The section on "The Exotic" is dedicated to the origins of porcelain and its way from Asia to the curiosity cabinets of European kings and sovereigns. The exhibition room on "The Everyday" provides an overview of the many facets of porcelain production that emerged since the age of industrialization and illustrates the outstanding expertise in porcelain manufacturing still available in Thuringia. 

The "Porcelain Worlds" exhibition at Leuchtenburg Castle boosted regional tourism in Thuringia. Supported by the EU, the exhibition revitalized the entire region and won the 2014 Thuringia Tourism Award. The long-term goal is a three-fold increase of annual visitor numbers to Leuchtenburg Castle, which equals some 150,000 visitors per year.
