Fascination and Passion

From musings to the reissue


At age 5, on a stroll with my parents I discovered a big yellow sphere in a garden in which you could lay down. When closed, it looked like an artifact from a different planet.

It was Rosenthal's Sunball.


It still remains in the same garden.
To this day, its unique design delights me every time I pass by it. A few years ago, I finally had the opportunity to purchase one of these rare specimen.

Ever since I animated with the idea to reissue the Sunball.


With support from Mr. Selldorf and the familiy of his partner Mr. Ris, my wife and I plucked up the courage to actually go about this project.

Since, the dream turned reality.
