BODEGA COLLECTION - L'apéro I Design at 1200°C
The “Bodega Collection” explores the practices and utensils found at the traditional "bodegas de vermut" (Spanish vermouth cellar and bar). The pieces explore the natural states of blown glass and the relationship between solid and liquid forms.
The designs are inspired by and shaped using an antique metal funnel and soda siphon cage form. Influenced by the shapes and texture of fine crystal, the carafe reveals its handcrafted process and the nature of the material through a playful approach that retains traces of the mould. The drinking glasses make reference to one of the distinctive additions to the served vermouth, where a small slit in the edge of the glass hints at the positioning of an olive pick.

'Design at 1200°C' is a project performance where unique glass pieces are blown at 1200ºC. The first series of prototypes, all inspired by the traditional forms of the aperitive ambient, were being crafted live in front of the audience without prior trials.
