things that come in glass by by Tapio Wirkkala, Karl Lagerfeld + Nigel Coates

Adding to the original Bolle collection are these five new stunning pieces. A series of bottles that are so perfect in balance, colour and composition, it seemed impossible that they could be improved upon. Wirkkala excells with form but here it is shown he is also a master with colour. True perfection.

Introducing Karl Lagerfeld’s first line of crystal products with Orrefors. Clean lines and streamlined designs makes up a collection of glasses, bowls and vases. In transparent, black or milky white crystal, the series unites the strict lines and contemporary elegance of Karl Lagerfeld with the exacting quality and expertise that has characterized Orrefors for over a century. The collection is limited to 5000 sets and comes boxed in an elegant black luxury packaging with the collaboration logo engraved in an exclusive badge in metal.‘I’ve always wanted to design glasses with a little tray under them,’ he says. ‘Every teacup comes with a saucer, but beer glasses are put on paper coasters. I don’t know why glasses have never had this matching tray. It’s such a basic, stupid idea, I don’t know why no one thought of it before.’ KL. You just can’t help but love him!

New to the Vessel Gallery, a host of miniature glass men that constitute Angel Falls crystal chandelier by Nigel Coates. Each figure is hand crafted into a  ‘base-jumping’ pose with limbs outreached. The piece is available in three different densities of angels: 12, 18 and 24 hand-made glass men that are suspended from a plectrum shaped brushed nickel canopy with halogen/LED flushed lighting spots.
