Thanks to their compact, balanced features the glasses lie beautifully in the hand. The shape was inspired by a Baroque copper cup from the collections of the MAK Vienna, itself influenced by Islamic works. Reflecting the lifestyle of the 50ies, the glasses are fully stackable. Finest muslin glass, mouth-blown into wooden forms, provides for their elegance. In 1964 the series was awarded the German National Design Price "Gute Form".
Today the "Alpha" series has become a classic just as the design of the classic copperwheel engraved monograms.
