This small cup made of pressed glass
is reminiscent of industrial moulds.
Enveloped by winglets that protect it from
excessive heat, it combines ruggedness with fragility.
Designed by Fabrice Gibilaro, Born in 1974.
He has a higher diploma in Design at the Beaux-Arts
de Saint Etienne and creates several objects around
the art of the table.
In 2006, he exhibited a porcelain cup at the
“Design et Shop” fair at the Saint Etienne biennial,
and it is this cup that La Rochère is issuing in glass.
This is the foundation stone of a collaboration with the glassworks, which gave birth to the Ale tankard.
The Zinc espresso cup and mug feature raised blades with an industrial character. Inspired by old aircraft engines, they have been designed to enjoy a hot coffee or tea without getting burned, and for a good grip.
