Horst Max Lebert Table Manners

The good old napkin ring is back again and very much in fashion. Not just for the enlarged family but for civilized hosts napkin rings are an indispensable accessory. Horst Max Lebert, who is himself an aesthete and even a bit of a philosopher, has long recognised that ‘not the thing itself is important but the emotion it releases.’


Horst Max Lebert forges gastronomic culture which does not depend on fashionable movements and time limits. One of the classics of his works are precious and artisticly created napkin rings that are indispensible on a stylishly covered table. Elliptic, round, modern and classic. With the napkin rings Horst Max Lebert follows on old tradition that experiences a renaissance of table manners in a puristic design. The Museum of Modern Art purchased the whole collection. Title of the collection: Tischmanieren. The working method of Horst Max Lebert is very traditional. He only uses 925/000 sterling silver. Every piece is carefully and lovingly handmade. He has his own and unique language of forms. He often uses the form of an ellipsis that serves as a main theme for many of his objects. All his works together create a harmonic synthesis of the arts.
