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. Her inspiration for the 30s Wine Glass comes from her previous 30s Cognac Glass design, both products sharing the shape of the cup and playfulness.

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.

CORTINA

"There is no beginning, and no end. Water cycles." I gave form to the cycle of water as circle by converging the spout and handle of kettle. Watched from the front, it is circular, but watched from the side, we can see that it is distorted. I suggest the concept of not literal convergence, but design convergence as distorted form. I selected the material of kettle whose heat is not conducted up to the handle. To use environment-friendly one, I avoided rubber.

The set is a healtier alternative to the wide use of the nylon bag system.
