Hans-Theo Bauman was among the protagonists who shaped the essence of “Made in Germany” and “Die Gute Form” in the wake of World War II. Baumann’s successful products include dinner service and porcelain objects, tea and coffee pots, cups and plates, candle holders and vases. Following his training in Textile Engineering in Switzerland and a degree at the Dresden Academy of Fine Arts (1943-46), Baumann went to Basel where he studied Graphic Design and Interior Design at the Gewerbeschule/ Schule für Gestaltung. In 1953 he spent some time working with Egon Eiermann in Pforzheim, before opening his own studio in 1955. In 1959 he was among the co-founders of the Association of German Industrial Designers (VDID). From 1954 until the 1970s Baumann worked for Rosenthal as a freelance designer. In 1969 he was appointed to the National Institute of Design in Ahmedabad, India, and in 1985 he became a professor at the Berlin University of the Arts.
