Ola for CoinCasa | 2017

Murano mouth blown glass tablewear

Fascinated by two old murano glass-blowing techniques, namely “balloton” and “rigadin”, we designed tableware with fluid geometries which create details on the glass evoking the natural surfaces of fruit, plants and sea waves.
Ola is a table set characterised by an elegant tropical spirit and it is composed of a glass and a carafe which can be used also as a vase.

The details of the surface created thanks to the “balloton” and “rigadin” techniques transform the glasses into tropical fruits and the carafe into the trunk of a palm tree thanks to the geometric waves.
As any other Murano glass, no jug or glass will be equal to another one. It is, in fact, impossible to check the results of the manufacturing observing the marks left by the bronze mould before blowing the jug and the glass inside the pear-shaped mould that will give them the ultimate shape.
