- Curator's comments
- 'Form 678' began life as a tea and coffee service known as 'Form 24' (1962) before it was extended to a full service by Koppel in 1968. The service is made from thin porcelain and is entirely undecorated, in keeping with koppel's view on modern design. The tight curves shown in this service reflect those used by Koppel in his metalware designs for Georg Jensen. For further references and illustrations see:
