Four new designs for

Riedel’s Barware tumbler collection

machine-MADE

RIEDEL's Barware collection presents the essential glasses for all cocktail and spirits lovers, including four new barware designs introduced in 2018, each with two different sizes. 

As with all good trends, the desire for decorated, heavy-based glasses in bars and at home has become current again. Spirits and cocktail connoisseurs are discovering the versatility of these stylish, yet subtly nostalgic, glasses for drinks enjoyment. The four new RIEDEL designs are inspired by the glamorous Art Nouveau period with stylish decoration, and present a contrast to RIEDEL’s traditionally unadorned wine glasses.

‘Optical O’, ‘Louis’, ‘Spey’ and ‘Fire’ have been executed in sparkling crystal glass and are all dishwasher-safe, making them suitable for both professional and home use. As such, all glasses are available in sets of two for retail and in sets of 12 for the hospitality sector.

Louis

The two ‘Louis’ tumblers were created by Kyle Solá, who won the Riedel Young Designer Competition with his innovative design as part of the Riedel Design Awards 2017 in Venice. The clean design features a striking line around the bottom of the tumblers.

Fire

‘Fire’ is distinguished by its dynamic flame-like decoration, designed by Georg Riedel. These elegant glasses are lighter and finer than the sturdier ‘Louis’ and ‘Spey’, with a tactile element that makes holding the glasses a pleasure.

Optical O

‘Optical O’ is based on the popular ‘O’ series of stemless wine glasses, designed by Maximilian J. RIEDEL. The art of optically blown glass originated in Venice, the home of the most superior glassblowing techniques, and few glass blowers are still proficient in this method.

Spey

The ‘Spey’ series takes its name from the world famous Scottish river, which is synonymous with fine Scotch Whiskies. Spey glasses have a large surface area, a timeless elegant decoration, and a heavy base.
