Yesterday at the Rauminhalt Gallery in Vienna, the 1/8 glass popular in Austria was reinterpreted and presented to the public as "the new 1/8 glass". The iconic house wine glass, developed by designer Peter Noever and architect Andrea Lenardin from Los Angeles, was presented under the name "the new 1/8 glass". declared_ Glass.
declared_ aims to examine selected industrial products of everyday culture and use their extraordinary qualities as a starting point for a new contemporary design. This also involves addressing the idea that our memories remain alive while making future memories possible.
In this sense, this is not a conventional exhibition, but an interactive process with the intention of inviting designers to take up this idea and continue it in the form of concrete projects. This project is accompanied by the intention not to deny locally grown peculiarities, but rather to confront them with global phenomena and to create a new dimension from them. Design as an interface between cultural diversity and global challenge in a time of dramatic political exclusion.
Thus, at Galerie Rauminhalt, Vienna special space is given to the reinterpretation of the traditional 1/8 glass. The iconic house wine glass, which has been displaced in recent decades even at the Heuriger, is now redefined and produced as "the new 1/8 glass" in two sizes that are stackable. This glass by Peter Noever and Andrea Lenardin is produced by Stölzle Lausitz, is related to the iconic appearance of the model, but gives its contents more space to unfold.
The current trend in table culture and the return to regional cuisine is leading to a new naturalness at the laid table. The new 1/8 glass, also a haptic delight, represents the revival of table wine.
