Simple egg-shaped crystal glasses cut in a
sloped shape. They joyfully rock on their
roundness while maintaining the stability
through thoughtful arrangement of materials.
They are hand made from top quality crystal
by the traditional mouth-blowing method. The
glasses are placed in softly designed
coasters from walnut or xylite, which look
like their natural shadow. Symbiosis of two
natural materials: crystal glass and ancient
wood - xylite. Xylite is a rare, 2,5 million
years old ancient wood with a high aesthetic
value. As it is very sensitive, xylite can
only be processed by the most experienced
and skilled wood artisans.The collection is
complemented by an elegant ellipse-shaped
walnut tray for ten glasses and a finger-
food tray
Glasses can be used with coasters or without
them. With their rocking they create a
relaxed and fun atmosphere while conforming
perfectly to your palm when held. Thin,
elegant, light trays are nice to hold in
hands to serve finger food and aperitifs,
especially cognac. When the trays lie on the
smooth table surface, they are rotatable
owing to the special form of the cross
sections, fine surface treatment of the wood
and balanced center of gravity.
The integrity of the design story (EGG - the
source of life, the most perfect and
beautiful natural shape; CRYSTAL; WOOD -
xylite, nutwood) is presented by additional
elements of the luxury gift packaging - a
booklet with short artistic stories and
haikus.
