"I had two ambitions when I designed Château," says designer Bertil Vallien. “First, I wanted to make a glass that a machine could not make, which you could see was handmade. The optics in the hive and the thin leg. My other ambition was to keep the design simple but elegant. ” - Bertil Vallien

„For me, the blowing room is the centre of everything. It’s like ladling matter out of a volcano and watching the glowing lava turn to ice. Knowing the exact moment at which to capture a shift of light or expression and wrench the secret from the glass is what it’s all about.“
