Design, innovate, elevate: These three pillars of Bormioli Rocco’s philosophy date back to the Italian company’s founding in 1825, and they remain in effect to this day. The curvy vases, stemware, and tableware reflect the Romans’ love of the sensual and come in colors reminiscent of the sea. Designed for professional and home use, these pieces are to be employed as well as enjoyed. Doubt it? Take a gander at Bormioli Rocco’s line of sexy glass storage containers, which in matter of form and function put their plastic brethren to shame.
When your craft dates back to the Middle Ages, it’s hard to escape the weight of history. But that hasn’t stopped Luigi Bormioli from innovating the art of glassmaking. Since setting up shop in 1946 in Parma, Italy, this family-owned company has made products that respect the past yet also focus on the needs of users today, particularly in regard to the strength, clarity, and affordability of the glass. Bormioli’s lead-free wine glasses, carafes, tumblers, and more — with design flourishes inspired by Renaissance painters — are always simple and elegant.
