TUMBLERS WITH A TWIST
STAND UP, our new crystal glass collection from SIEGER by Ichendorf, gets things moving on the dinner table. Inspired by the imperturbable balance of roly-poly toys, the three hand-blown wine and digestif glasses and a carafe pair elegant lightness with unexpected dynamism. Whether empty or full, they rock gently back and forth each time they’re touched only to regain their balance and stand up straight once again. It’s made possible by the precisely curved base, whose contact area with the table measures less than a square millimetre.
“The first idea of STAND UP was most of all about fun, about being tipsy, about roly-poly. As we developed the design, it quickly became very clear: we were working on pureness, on beauty.”MICHAEL SIEGER
It took a lot of experiments, sketches and 3D prototypes to attain a perfect balance that allows finely nuanced movements without any spillages. Designer Michael Sieger attached particular importance to the lightness of the glass and the precision of the curved base. The tiny point on which each STAND UP glass rests on the table is decorated with a finely engraved star – the symbol of our SIEGER brand and an elegant testament to the exceptional craftsmanship of the Milanese brand Ichendorf.
The tumblers are available either in transparent glass or in the subtly greyish Smoke variant. The collection is rounded off by an elegantly designed carafe.
Light and playful, the collection is a sure-fire conversation starter at the dinner table – especially when the glasses suddenly start dancing as the drinks are poured. At the same time, the collection is designed to be highly versatile and suitable for everyday use. Because they don’t have the traditional stem, the tumblers can be used not just for digestifs and wine, but also for water, orange juice, gin and tonic, tea or coffee.
