Ola for CoinCasa
Murano glassware
2017

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 mold before blowing the jug and the glass inside the pear-shaped mold that will give them the ultimate shape.

As a result, each object will be a unique and original product.
