Ian D. Marsden designs crafted exclusively for the prestigious RITZENHOFF Design collection


Welcome to my dedicated page for my contributions to the RITZENHOFF Design Collection. As part of the esteemed RITZENHOFF Designer Family, I have contributed eight distinct pieces to their collection, each mirroring its own unique style and essence. RITZENHOFF, a renowned family-run enterprise based in Germany, stands out for producing 50 million glasses each year and boasts one of the country’s most advanced glassworks.

Established in 1992, RITZENHOFF has established a tradition of designing distinctive drinking glasses. They collaborate with prominent designers to invite them to contribute unique signature pieces to their various collections. Over time, these glasses have earned their status as sought-after collectors’ items, presenting ideal gifting options for myriad occasions.

My contributions to the RITZENHOFF collection span diverse products, from imaginative drinking glasses to practical kitchen items. Among the standouts are the adorable nautical Salt Pig, endearing Sugarbird, assertive Viking Beer Glass, and the delightful Cat Bowl adorned with an engaging cat character. Notably, my “Strong Coffee!” Coffee Love Cappuccino Cups come in both male and female iterations, making for an intimate coffee-sharing experience. I’ve also crafted two fun Herb Jars, introducing an element of playfulness to kitchen settings.

It’s been a privilege to be a part of the RITZENHOFF legacy and to contribute to their stature as market leaders in the exclusive beverage glassware segment. Below, you will find a full gallery and list of all of my designs for RITZENHOFF, each epitomizing the high-caliber craftsmanship and distinctive style the brand is renowned for.
