1924, a vintage year for glass design.
The new 1924 Libbey Vintage stemware range fuses jazz-age flair with exciting new cocktail trends. The design is based on Richard Zijlstra’s ingenious Glassology® food pairing concept, which lets you rest a stylish spoon on the rim of the coupe.
Richard and Libbey have together modernized the original coupe design made in 1924 by legendary Royal Leerdam designer, A.D. Copier, which coincidentally once had pride of place in Richard’s own grandmother’s display cabinet. Besides the Coupe, Libbey also added two new glasses to the range, a Gin & Tonic glass and a Cocktail/Wine glass. The spoon will be launched later this year.
With their distinctive stem, embossed footplate and original bowl design that gracefully opens out to let your lips rest on the elegant rim, in turn enhancing the taste experience, these glasses epitomize everything that makes cocktails so loved by so many: bygone-age sophistication coupled with an openness to forward-looking trends.
As a contest like no other, the Glassology design contest raises the bar for those who strive to offer the ultimate drinking experience. It offers drinks professionals an opportunity to leave their mark on the bartending industry and create something lasting long beyond the end of an evening in a bar. Libbey will start the promotion of the second Glassology edition in September 2017. Meanwhile professionals can join the exclusive Glassology by Libbey Facebook Community, a place where contestants can learn, connect and get inspired.
