With Bormioli Rocco we conducted a deep research in the history and culture of Italian wine and the use of glass in two prestigious projects: UNA, the unique bottle made for Italy 150th anniversary official wine and “Inalto”, the top range wine tasting glasses collection of Bormioli. Both creations were part of the “ADI Design Index – Compasso d’Oro Internazionale 2015” selection.
The creation of UNA has been a journey through tradition and history with the goal of developing a strong identity design that is truly representative of the country’s history and love of its products.
The 150 bottles of UNA in the Jeroboam version, were used as gifts from the Italian President of the Republic , Giorgio Napolitano, to head of state across the world.
The InAlto collection, combines elegance and technology: the glasses utilize Star Glass technology (formidable transparency) as well as XTL technology (robust resistance). The shape of the glasses were designed and conceived utilizing studies from some of the greatest Italian university that researched the interaction between aroma and flavors with the geometry of the glass.
