Chateau Snaps 6 cl
“I had two ambitions when I designed Château,” says designer Bertil Vallien. “Firstly, I wanted to do a glass that a machine couldn’t make, one you could see was handmade. The optics of the bowl and the slim, drawn stem saw to that. My second ambition was to keep the design simple but elegant.”

„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.“
