Clear glass or coloured, long or short stemmed, engraved or plain, matching to tableware or autonomous in design – for more than 170 years Villeroy & Boch has produced a vast range of glassware suitable for all tastes and every occasion: from sophisticated to simple, from eccentric to exclusive. And there is not the slightest sign of stagnation: designers regularly develop new lines and extend existing bestsellers with new colours and articles to enrich the choice available. In 2016 the popular Boston Coloured, Colour Concept, Entrée and Purismo are profiting from the intensive design work.
New colours for Boston Coloured and Colour Concept
Coloured glass brings attractive touches to the table, immediately catching the eye. The low crystal glasses from the Boston Coloured line are also decorated with an all-over diamond-shaped engraving that creates a fine honeycomb structure over the glasses.This gives the goblets a distinctive feel, distinguishing them clearly from thin-walled glasses. The line includes glasses for white wine, red wine and water, a tumbler, a long-drink glass, a champagne glass and a bowl in the colours Clear, Blue, Red and Green. Strikingly new are the articles in the Pantone trend colour Rose, which matches perfectly to the bestselling tableware Mariefleur, Mariefleur Gris and Rose Cottage. A new shot glass has also been launched in all of the colours.
Colour Concept is another well-loved coloured glassware line from Villeroy & Boch. This high-quality product is coloured using a traditional interior overlay technique. There is a choice of hand-blown glasses in two sizes, dishes and chargers in the colours Clear, Midnight Blue, Red, Amber, Smoke and Burgundy, suitable for everyday use and also for delighting dinner guests. The colour palette for 2016 has been extended to include two new trend colours: Lavender, an intensive, modern violet, and Lagoon, a fresh natural green.
New articles for Entrée and Purismo
Entrée is perfect for every day. As well as glasses for red wine, white wine and champagne, it includes various tumblers and a jug. The glasses are made of high-quality crystal giving them great stability and ensuring that they will not lose their brilliance even with frequent cleaning in the dishwasher. For 2016 Entrée is being extended with a cognac glass, a glass for grappa or sherry, and a beer glass, and thus offers more options for table-settings and also for aperitifs, which are growing ever more popular.
Purismo comprises simply designed glasses of high-quality crystal. In a very discrete look, the glasses provide a whole range of drinking enjoyment in the individual modules of the collection. The wine module includes two red-wine and white-wine glasses and a decanter. The beer module offers beautiful beer glasses. And the range of special glasses is equally convincing with glasses for cognac, grappa, champagne, dessert wine and water. The bar module is new for 2016 and offers six different cocktail glasses for martini, long drinks, exotic cocktails, whisky (two sizes of tumbler) and a shot glass. The collection has thus been extended to a complete overall concept.
