Rosenthal Dandelion glassware/design: Alvaro Uribe
he image of the wind carrying away dandelion pollen was the inspiration behind New York designer Alvaro Uribe’s new, elegant and delicate Dandelion drinking glass and gift collection. The linear cut of the body and base ensures that the glasses sparkle from all angles and provides a striking counterpoint to the tactile, balanced shape. Champagne, wine, whisky and longdrink glasses create a distinctive and timeless table arrangement, and come complete with two matching vases, a bowl and an underplate.
For Alvaro Uribe (*1986), design is the romantic symbiosis of form and function, heart and mind. Originally from Colombia, the New York product designer creates subtle designs in his studio that are unaffected by the latest fashions and trends. His work has already been recognised with the Red Dot Design Award, the Good Design Award and the IDEA Award.
