Roman 'Holders'

Raffaella Mangiarotti / Atipico
From €65

Raffaella Mangiarotti has reinterpretted Roman classicism with contemporary Italian materials, resulting in this delicate, sculptural tableware range for Atipico. The designer was struck by a catalogue of Roman art that featured a glass vessel with two loop handles, that 'looked like it had been made recently in Murano, and instead was an ancient artifact'. This inspired her looping metal candlesticks, jars, and vases, that use a single strip of golden metal to suspend their glass contents to ethereal effect.

'Uruoshi' bottle

Hirota Glass
£72

Taken from Hirota's 'Uruoshi Series', this glass bottle quietly presents a number of uses. The lacquer stopper is believed to possess unique qualities — including anti-fungal and insect repelling properties — none of which interfere with the condition of the water flask's contents. Meanwhile, a crisp silhouette of undulating waves is inspired by the Japanese word 'uruoshi', meaning 'to enrich', and is intended to enhance any liquid decanted from the 720ml bottle — be it mineral water, wine or liqueur.

Kusa Tea Service

Kengo Kuma / Georg Jensen
£60,500

An inaugural project for Kengo Kuma, this 11 piece Japanese tea set merges his architectural roots with Georg Jensen's fine and polished Danish silver craft.
