Glass Bottle by Alessandro Zambelli For Seletti
The Glass Bottle references the familiar form of ordinary PET bottles with a bit of irony, re-imagining the ubiquitous disposable product in borosilicate glass to be a sustainable solution. Unsightly plastic bottles will never be spotted on your table again.
Stand in the middle of French town Villedieu-les-Poêles and bang on a pot to signal lunchtime, and no one may hear you. Its inhabitants have taken on the moniker ‘Sourdins’, from the French word for deaf—a side effect of 800 years of hammering pots into shape. Hard of hearing or not, it was in this city of copper in 1830 that Ernest Mauviel founded renowned cookware label Mauviel. Made with generations of knowledge, modern manufacturing, and top quality materials, the Mauviel collection of pots and pans provides expert and home kitchens around the world with a lifetime of culinary perfection—and an immaculate appeal to the other four senses.
Mauviel is still a privately owned family business that is into the seventh generation of ownership. Villedieu Les Poeles, “the city of pots,” has a legendary history, 800 years worth, of creating copper cookware and decorative articles. Since that time Villedieu has been the world’s center of copper cookware manufacturing.
