30s

The 30s Wine Glass by Saara Korppi is particularly designed for white wine, but it can also be used for other beverages, too. It has been made in a hot shop using old glass blowing techniques, which means every piece is unique. Saara’s goal is to design high quality glass that looks interesting from all angles and, when filled with liquid, allows light to reflect from different angles adding extra enjoyment to drinking.

Urchin

This design bridges a gap between fine dining and casual situations. It is inspired by natural forms in particular by Urchins and Corals. The polymer body shells allow strong colours to be employed and resist the corrosive effects of the contents.

It brings colour and a talking point to dinner parties where it becomes a 'table sculpture' as well as functional object. The materials and appearance make it suitable for an informal gathering of friends.
