Used in fine hotels and resorts worldwide, Schott Zwiesel’s glassware is as durable as it is dashing: beneath the clean, sculptural lines, each piece possesses strength and solidity of construction. Translation? You don’t have to baby this glassware, and it’ll stand up to hundreds of stints in the dishwasher. And remember: Wine glasses, champagne flutes, decanters, and all-purpose goblets are the markings of a well-stocked bar.
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.
