The euphoria and anticipation we experience while scratching off the play area on a scratchcard inspired designer Antonín Tomášek when to design the Islas Fortunate mug collection, where a poetic lottery is hidden under gold foil. When you pull off the foil, it reveals three symbols that tell you whether you are the lucky owner of the winning mug. If the symbols match, you are entitled to get another mug free of charge. The odds of winning are high – every nineth mug is a winner. The decorative motifs illustrate the long history of the Rudolf Kämpf porcelain factory, dating back to 1907.


Antonín Tomášek (* 1978) ranks among the most experienced Czech porcelain designers. He has been professionally dedicated to the craft for 25 years –his Cibulka vase is on sale e.g. at New York’s MoMA gallery, he is co-founder of the Whitefruits brand and collaborates with the QUBUS. His works are represented in various collections both in Czechia and abroad. He has innovated and produced some of Czechia’s foremost porcelain works, and he works as Director of the Ceramic Design Studio at the Faculty of Art and Design at the J.E. Purkyně University in Ústí nad Labem.

About the company

Since December 1911, the porcelain manufactory in Loučky, West Bohemia, bears the name of Rudolf Kämpf. To this day, the company prides itself on production of traditional porcelain goods, which stand out for their strength, high quality of craftsmanship and durability. It is one of the last factories in the Czech Republic where porcelain is still made purely by hand, often producing limited collections or unique pieces. It sells exclusive porcelain sets, vases and other tableware under the Rudolf Kämpf brand, while it focuses on contemporary design under the Leander Fresh brand. Since last year, it has become part of the G. Benedikt Group company.
