The idea for the Cupa-glass series was born in a small wine-bar in Firenze, Italy in 2002. Its designer, Daniele Semeraro, also the owner of Sempli, was born in Västerås, Sweden. It was after moving to Firenze that he discovered the joy of wine and the essential role the wine glass played in the drinking experience. He saw that the glass’s stem was superfluous from both an aesthetic and a technical point of view. Designing without adding became his philosophy and the result was the Cupa glass series.
You can see them in booth # 3847 at New York Now.
Staying true to the Italian tradition, the glasses are hand produced by the most knowledgeable glass blowers. The swirling rotation of the glass when posed on a table is both amusing and practical; enjoy your brandy in this glass, and smell the aromas as they dissolve into their surroundings. Or let your wine oxygenate in the glass in a perfect manner. Cupa glass series is produced out of the purest glass containing no lead or lead oxide, making it a 100 percent sustainable experience.
