Riposo

The design of this service was inspired by two schools of the early 20th century the German Bauhaus and the Russian avant-garde. Strict straight geometry and well-thought-out functionality fully corresponds to the spirit of the manifestos of those times: "what is convenient is beautiful". At the same time following modern trends the designer combines two contrasting materials in this project. Classic white milk porcelain is complemented by bright lids made of cork. Functionality of the design is supported by simple, convenient handles and the overall usability of the form.

30s

The 30s Wine Glass by Saara Korppi is particularly designed for white wine, but it can also be used for other beverages, too. It has been made in a hot shop using old glass blowing techniques, which means every piece is unique. Saara’s goal is to design high quality glass that looks interesting from all angles and, when filled with liquid, allows light to reflect from different angles adding extra enjoyment to drinking. Her inspiration for the 30s Wine Glass comes from her previous 30s Cognac Glass design, both products sharing the shape of the cup and playfulness.

Island

Island glass was inspired by Korean islands, Dokdo and Ulleungdo. The inspiration came from the bottom of the glass after viewing the flipped-down soju glass on the table. Soju is the most popular Korean liquor. The glass shape consists of a streamline based on the shape of the Korean language at the bottom of the glass. The shape engraves an image of a floating island on the ocean when the Island Glass is displayed. The material consists of an unleaded crystal that expresses clear texture and delicate details and at the same time manufactured harmlessly to the human body and environment.

Dengo

The design is inspired by the origin of Dengo's cacao – the heart of the Atlantic Forest in Bahia, Brazil. The cacao is harvested in cabruca, a traditional agroforestry and forest-positive system. In an effort to inspire, create brand recognition and convey the brand's message to the consumer, the designers turned the chocolate bar into a sculpture that represents some of the surrounding elements, such as dry leaves on the ground, foliage of the tall trees that provide beautiful play of light and shadow, and a variety of seeds.
