Finalist of the design competition ‘Bombay Sapphire’, London.
The purpose of the competition was to design a new glass for Bombay Sapphire cocktails. I had two ideas which become one project. First, I wanted to save place on shelves, so I decided to design a stackable glass. Then, of course I knew what is a Bombay Sapphire cocktail, but I wanted to add more possibilities. I decided to create a double side glass cocktail. First side is the classic cocktail and second side is the fountain cocktail. Last details, the glass stroke is also an olive hook.
When I knew that I was a finalist, Bombay Sapphire gave me 400 € to produce a prototype, which was nothing, compared to the complexity of the project. But after few phone calls, I went to Lyon suburbs, in France, meeting a glass expert : Mr Pierre PIGNAT, France best worker, scientific and artistic glassware.
Thanks to Mr PIGNAT we could produce two prototypes. They were exhibited during London Designer’s Day.
These pieces are now parts of the Bombay Sapphire collection.
