Egbert Freiherr von Maltzahn
When Egbert Freiherr von Maltzahn assumed the management role, the Porzellan Manufaktur Nymphenburg opened up to the outside world. For the first time, there were public tours and appointments for the press, film and television. From 1999, contemporary, some avant-garde works, found their way into the collection. Freiherr von Maltzahn succeeds in winning internationally renowned designers and artists, including Konstantin Grcic, Hella Jongerius, Khashayar Naimanan and Ted Muehling, for a collaboration with Nymphenburg. He entrusts the design of the flagship store on Munich's Odeonsplatz to Konrad Ellerhorst. Due to Egbert Maltzahns efforts, Corine, a character from Franz Anton Bustelli's COMMEDIA DELL ARTE, became the trophy of the annual "International Book Prize in 2001".
