Entry Description

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. Complemented by softly designed coasters from walnut or xylite for single or three glasses, an elegant ellipse-shaped walnut tray for ten glasses and a finger-food tray. 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. Glasses can be used also without coasters. With their rocking they create a relaxed and fun atmosphere while conforming perfectly to the palm when held. They are hand made by the traditional glass-blowing method of top quality crystal in Steklarna Rogaska, Slovenia. The integrity of the story is presented by additional elements of the gift packaging.
