Glasses, by Sieger De­sign, for Ritzen­hoff

Wallpaper - - Wine & Design -

Beer, gin and cham­pagne may have been around for cen­turies, but Ritzen­hoff is mak­ing sure these age-old bev­er­ages are never out of place in a con­tem­po­rary set­ting. The Ger­man glass­ware com­pany is cel­e­brat­ing its 25th an­niver­sary and brand re­launch with four new glasses – one for each of the al­co­holic drinks, plus an­other for milk. Each glass is avail­able in a va­ri­ety of de­signs com­mis­sioned from 29 renowned cre­atives, in­clud­ing de­sign­ers Monica Förster, Naoto Fuka­sawa and Stu­diopepe, and architects Piero Lis­soni, Pa­tri­cia Urquiola and Stu­dio Fuk­sas. De­vel­oped by Sieger De­sign, the project re­calls Ritzen­hoff ’s fa­mous ini­tia­tive of the 1990s, when se­lect de­sign­ers were asked to dec­o­rate milk glasses. The re­sult was a range of cult ob­jects that rev­o­lu­tionised the in­dus­try. Decades later, it seems the brand might be mak­ing his­tory again. Mary Cleary ritzen­hoff.de; sieger-de­sign.com
