TAKE (Japanese for bamboo)
carafes and glasses in hand crafted borosilicate glass
The first born in the family is the TAKE 75 cl carafe, the result of the self-imposed principle: decoration = function. The project aimed to create objects to use, items in which the aesthetic value did not exceed the function, but on the contrary, where the decoration could be a support to the real use.
The rings that mark the body of the carafe, and that at first glance may seem like mere decoration, are actually measure of the liquid content and at the same time help to keep a firm grip. The first ring marks the 25 cl, the second the 50 cl and the last ring indicate the 75 cl, ie the content of a common bottle of wine.
They are made by hand by the master glassmaker, who first heats the glass body and then slips it down, realizing with precision the ribs on the surface of the cylinder.
body marked by such
folds reminds the trunk of bamboo and it is in
pursuing this suggestion that has been designed the nozzle cut, so as to resume
the Japanese fountains with the arm swinging bamboo. That arm falls
rhythmically under the weight of the water and dropping beats on the stone
below to create the distinctive sound that has the function to remove the
crows. Once again decoration = function
