In search of a groundbreaking and strong design the top-class jury of the German Design Award has found a winner: It honored the crystal glass series POWER from Stölzle Lausitz for its excellent product design with the German Design Award 2018. The range with its three stemmed glasses and two wine tumblers is now allowed to carry the title ‘Winner 2018’ in the group ‘Tabletop’ and category ‘Excellent Product Design’. Stolzle Lausitz see this award as a confirmation of their ongoing vision to connect innovative design with high functionality in a striking and trenchant way.

The new collection from the Lusatia-based glassmakers can be recognised by the glasses’ particularly broad and flat bowls. Even with a smaller filling volume, this allows for maximum contact with the air, thereby really enabling the aromas to develop. The collection stands out in particular thanks to the straight bowl and tapered stem, which give the impression that the bowl is floating. The same straight lines have been replicated for the tumblers.

With these new products, Stölzle Lausitz is consolidating its position as a producer of high-quality wine glasses. The look of the new POWER collection has also earned it a nomination for a German Design Award. Glasses like those in the POWER collection have, until now, been extremely rare on the market, and have tended to be of the more costly, mouth-blown variety. With almost 130 years of glass-making tradition in Lusatia, Stölzle has also succeeded in producing high-quality, unique glasses of this kind using machinery.
