Bistro Double Wall Glasses are featured at the Ellwanger Estate
“The best part is seeing your coffee suspended in the clear, and if you’re a cream and sugar coffee drinker, you’ll be amazed at the vortex of coffeeness in the mug”.
Give up bad design for good
For Bodum this is more than a catch phrase, it is their essence. Founded in Switzerland over 60 years ago Bodum seeks to be the world number one name in coffee & tea makers & accessories.
Bistro Double Wall Glasses are hip bistro styling in industrial-strength borosilicate glass. Handblown in two double-walled, insulating designs to float your beverage of choice—hot or cold.
Winners of the 2007 iF Product Design Award, the Bistro Double Wall Glasses are perfectly suited for a multitude of hot and cold beverages as well as desserts. Made of heat-resistant borosilicate glass, these vessels guarantee that their contents will remain hot for a longer period of time while the glass itself remains cool to the touch.
“For more than two decades Bodum has aimed to produce articles that are designed and manufactured to the highest level of functionality and quality, making top design available to everyone throughout the world, thanks to affordable prices. Simplicity and functionality are the basic requirements for a Bodum design. Out of this basic concept grows a shape with a unique and simple beauty. Beauty–a quality that is eminently satisfying to our senses and intellect and that enhances our daily life. Often it is the small, scarcely noticed objects that display optimum functionality and design, simply because they were created from pure necessity. The Bodum design team hopes you will enjoy the fruits of our efforts.” –Carsten Jorgensen, Director of Design
Bodum Design Group AG is a Switzerland-based manufacturer of household appliances, table service, and utensils featuring Scandinavian design. Led by Jorgen Bodum, who, together with other members of the Bodum family, continues to control 100 percent of the company founded by his father, Peter Bodum, the firm has long been synonymous with its Santos and other vacuum-type coffee makers. Since the early 1980s, however, Bodum has diversified its product range to cover nearly all aspects of table service. The company’s products include both vacuum and “French press” coffee makers, tea pots, presses and kettles, silverware, coffee, tea and drink glasses, china, serving and storage items, and kitchen utensils. The company also has its own branded line of teas. Most of Bodum’s designs are created by Carsten Jorgensen, Bodum’s longtime director of design; the company has also hired outside designers from time to time. In addition to designing and producing its products, Bodum operates an international retail store network, with nearly 20 stores in ten countries. The company’s products are also sold through third-party retailer channels. Bodum’s sales in 2001 were estimated to be CHF 200 million.
