Austrian architect Vera Purtscher began her design career in 1997 with her first tableware designs – a teapot warmer “Inner Fire” for Alessi, followed by the Tantris porcelain, and the unique MoonLashes cutlery which quickly found its way to the tables of some of the World’s best chefs. Vera’s latest collection, SinStella glassware, is exclusively used by chef Gabriel Kreuther in his eponymous restaurant in New York; and now, the beautiful champagne flutes from the SinStella collection have been chosen for Meghan & Harry's official royal wedding album.
After the successful MoonLashes cutlery collection, the latest creation by VERA PURE is the SinStella glass series, which aims to revolutionize the fine dining experience in the catering and private sector. SinStella was born from an inspiring cooperation with some of the World’s best chefs.
"The basic idea of these novel glasses is to separate the foot and stem from the bowl. The collection features a sculptural, aerodynamic base made of the flawless K9 glass which holds different crystal-glass inputs and can be used individually for both drinks and meals," explains architect and designer Vera Purtscher. “The possibilities are endless - from a standing reception to a multi-course dinner.”
While unique and dramatic in design, these glass pieces are also highly functional. Chef Gabriel Kreuther’s scallop crudo served in the SinStella UFO glass has even been described as “The most beautiful dish of the year” by the New York Post.
Most recently, the SinStella glassware was featured in the book by the Rolls-Royce Enthusiasts' Club, launched earlier this year at the Goodwood Estate, and will be among a handful of luxury brands included in the publication of "Harry & Meghan - The Wedding Album". With 300 pages, the book will cover different parts of the couple’s life together – their private life, charity work, and exclusive stories of luxury brands. A champagne flute engraved with a crown and the initials of Harry and Meghan perfectly fits this special moment.
Add a touch of royal living to your own home with SinStella. From champagne flutes to serving dishes, these gorgeously crafted glass pieces will take you through decades of entertaining.
