In 1968, everything suddenly seemed possible: moon landing, prosperity, individual freedom. At this time, the porcelain manufacturer Philip Rosenthal commissioned the sculptor Günter Ferdinand Ris and the architect Herbert Selldorf to design and produce a limited edition of 50 Sunballs. 2024 the Sunball is back in the world! Better and more functional than ever. Handmade at the same location where it was born in 1968.

Weather resistance

Glass fiber is very resistant to weather influences such as UV radiation, rain, snow and temperature fluctuations. Compared to some other materials, especially metals, it has excellent corrosion resistance.


Glass fiber is a very durable material. It does not tend to rust, corrode or weather, which extends its service life compared to other materials.

Light weight

Compared to some other building materials, GRP is very lightweight, making it easier to handle and install. This is particularly advantageous when it comes to large structures or outdoor applications.

Corrosion resistance

Compared to metals, GRP is not susceptible to corrosion. This makes it particularly suitable for environments in which metals could be damaged by corrosion.

Chemical resistance

GRP is resistant to many chemical substances and is therefore suitable for environments with aggressive chemical conditions, e.g. in industrial plants.
