GRASSL GLASS

SWISS DESIGN. MOUTH-BLOWN.

Grassl Glass is pursuing traditional glass making techniques with a focus on functional wine-centric glassware design.

Stemware is one of the most important points that shouldn't be neglected by wine lovers who want to get the best experience possible. Tasting your wine through Grassl glass could be compared to listening to an Opera song at La Scala in Milan versus through a headset. Both experiences will be radically different, while the music being the same. 


Grassl Glass was founded by Austrian wine lover Alexander Mackh who was getting frustrated not being able to find glasses that suited his wine. So Alexander decided to design his own glasses, collaborating with winemakers such as Jean-Marc Roulot in order to adjust his prototypes glasses according to their feedbacks. 


While other producers, in the "mouth-blown glass" industry, focus first on the aesthetics, Grassl's centre of attention is first and foremost on the functionality of each glass, all of them being optimized for different types of wines.


Manufactured from a single workshop in Slovakia with superior raw materials, these "performance-first" glasses are also true pieces of art that heighten the entire experience with their featherweight elegance, blurring the line between wine and taster.

All Grassl glasses are blown into wooden moulds. The mould is carved out by hand. It takes around 1.5h to make 1 piece, which then can be used to make ~250 wineglasses.

The tradition of wooden mould glass-blowing goes back centuries. All of their glassware is made using this technique. Since the mould will slightly burns with every piece, each wine glass will be unique.

MATERIALS

An oxy-fuel fired furnace melts glassmaking sand, soda, dolomite, potassium, potassium oxide and recycled glass. The result is a 1700°C hot, lead-free molten mass resembling the composition of pure rock crystal.

CRAFTSMANSHIP

Twenty years of glassmaking experience are required to consistently craft the Grassl Glass Collection. Five artisans are needed to produce a single stemmed glass during the hot-shaping phase. Followed by a slow-cooling process with an additional five steps for finalisation.
