CALICI MILANESI — glassware trio

The striking geometric shapes of the glassware trio recall the Modern architectural gems of Milan, especially the lavish Villa Necchi, designed by architect Piero Portaluppi in the 1930s. Calici Milanesi is also an homage to the Italian city’s most indulgent tradition: the aperitivo. It is an everyday ritual and a well deserved pause for the busy Milanese lifestyle.

The set consists of a Martini glass, a Champagne coupe and a wine glass and were handmade in Italy using borosilicate glass.

The Project is part of Souvenir Milano, curated by Raffaella Guidobono and presented during Milan Design Week 2018 at Brera Design Apartment.
