fferrone design created the Revolution Collection. Revolution is in the permanent design collection of the Art Institute of Chicago and awareded a prestigious GOOD DESIGN AWARD in 2004.
Strikingly simple in form, the Revolution Collection is handcrafted in the Czech Republic by master glassblowers, and formed from a pure extrusion of hand-blown borrosilicate glass. This material provides a high degress of thermal resistance for a range of hot and cold applications, and is oven, microwave, freezer, and dishwasher safe.
When in sue, the contents of these pieces appear to float seeming to defy gravity and visually suspend their contents, be it water, wine, champagne, gelato, or soup.
fferrone design is a design and research practice, employing architecture, product design, and graphic design in a multidisciplinary approach for the creation of space, object, and communication. fferrone design is distinctive in its thoughtful approach to form and innovative in its application of materials and manufacturing. These attributes are fundamental to the design philosophy and approach, along with responsible sourcing of materials and production.
