Glass production has been a highly valued art for many centuries. Even today glass-makers, who use their mouths to blow the molten quartz sand into the shape of a drinking glass, are regarded as artists rather than as artisans. Beautiful glasses caress the hand and delight the eye. ZWILLING “Sorrento” double-walled glasses are wonderful examples of this: they are surprisingly light and captivate users with their attractive yet timeless shape. The minimalist design by Matteo Thun & Antonio Rodriguez blends seamlessly with all styles of tableware – whether traditional or modern. The raw material used is borosilicate glass – a heat-resistant glass, which is insensitive to sudden changes in temperature. The double-walled design of the glasses also ensures excellent insulation to ensure that cold drinks – or desserts, crèmes or parfaits – stay cold for longer, and warm drinks stay warm for longer. Pleasing side-effect: the outside surface does not be-come hot – meaning that there is no risk of burning the fingers.
