Touch is the gimmick German brand Kahla hopes consumers will appreciate when they handle its award-winning porcelain line, touted as the first in the world with a velvety-soft surface. The products also come with properties such as heat protection and noise reduction, and are safe to use in microwave ovens. Among the products available are the Five Senses cappuccino cup and saucer (left; HK$290 a set) in a variety of colours. For non-touchy-feely types, there are 'pierced' mugs (above; HK$110 and HK$140) and bowls (above; HK$160). The products are available at Exclusivites, shop 1099, IFC Mall, Central, tel: 3152 2212.
