CIBI Collection by Cini Boeri
Born in 1924, a student of Gio Ponti, Cini Boeri was a prolific and avant-garde architect and designer, a proponent of the functionality of design over its aesthetics.
She realised both in Italy and abroad private flats and buildings for public use as well as museum installations; her trademark is the great attention devoted to the study of the functionality of space and the psychological relationships between man and the environment. Several of her creations can be found in museums and international exhibitions.
“I have always been interested in people and their behaviour […] I like to get in tune with clients to find solutions and understand their needs and desires to try to provide them with the best possible.
In 1973, she designed the Cibi collection for Arnolfo di Cambio: a series of crystal glasses and table accessories including the double old fashioned glass, known as Blade Runner Glass or Deckard’s Glass.
” The visionary Cibi collection has not only won a place in the history of handcrafted glassware, but in the history of world cinema as well.”
Cibi collection is distinguished by the typical X-shaped choker of the glass, which not only gives movement but also allows for an easy and firm grip.
Each tumbler is mouth-blown and hand-cut by expert Tuscan craftsmen to the original specifications and using the original moulds created in 1973.
Thanks to the appearance of the Double Old Fashion in the film Blade Runner, the Cibi collection has established itself as a classic with a modern, elegant and futuristic design. For true fans of spirits and vintage as well as design.
