Hans Harald Rath designed the “Alpha“ set in 1952. The even shape full of tension makes the glasses lie smoothly in the hands. The idea came from a medieval copper tumbler, itself influenced by Islamic shapes. Following the trend of the fifties the glasses can be stapled – bearing the spirit the Frankfurter Küche (“for the young household”).
Thinnest Muslin glass, mouth blown into wooden forms, gives them elegance. Alpha is available with a tilted stone engraved line around the tumbler. You think gravity plays mad and the water surface is dancing in your glass.
