Sometimes designers can get so caught up in the look that they forget about the practical use of the product. That wasn’t the case for Daniele Semeraro, the Swedish designer of Sempli, a company that specializes in elegant glassware with a functional design.
Daniele Semeraro was raised in Sweden but spent much of his life in Italy. He admired the simple functionality of Sweden and the style and elegance of Italy. Semeraro realized that the wine glass played an essential role in the drinking experience and came up with the idea of a stemless design that started the Cupa-glass series.
The glass is handmade from the purest, lead-free crystal by the most skilled glassblowers. Semeraro combined entertainment and practicality with a unique tapered bottom that causes the glass to swirl when put down, allowing the wine to aerate on its own.
Design at its Finest
