Pouring the Source of Life

Pure drinking water is one of the great natural resources in Austria. Now it can be enjoyed in a form that does justice to its health and environmental value.

The simple and delicate design of Blue Gold – carafe and tumblers – brings out the best in this precious and indispensible liquid. Miki Martinek designed hand blown ultra-thin glass objects that are pleasant to touch. They almost seem to disappear so that you feel like you are holding nothing but crystal-clear water in your hands.

Sophisticated design makes them so special. The elegantly curved, blown glass bottoms turn the tumblers into a beautiful setting for what Austrians consider one of their blessings: pure, clear water.

To your health!
