  3. 3. Productivity Perfecting the wine glassThe exquisite Château BaccaratBaccarat’s new collection of innovative crystalglasses, shown at MAISON&OBJET 2012 inParis, has been designed to reveal the complex-ity, richness and subtlety of wine. Sensorially de-veloped with oenologist Bruno Quenioux, thecurvature is like that of trapeze, with a result thatis truly revolutionary - both aesthetically andtechnically. The generous volume of the redwine glasses enables the aroma to achieve op-timum aeration, having a flattened form anddeep, wide chimney. The white wine version, onthe other hand, is necessarily smaller and has aflatter shape. In both cases, the bouquets sup-pleness and aromas are unleashed, while thealcohol tang is minimised, enabling the wine togain smoothness without losing intensity. Notwilling to exercise blind faith, we did the testwith an average Cru Bourgeois, first in an ordi-nary sommeliers glass, and then in Baccaratsnewest beauty, and the result was exhilarating;like smelling the rose instead of the perfume...www.baccarat.comPortrait: Bruno Quenioux: wine expert, sommelier, oenologistFUTUR HERITAGEStudents with a taste for CognacMaison Rémy Martin, with three centuries of ex-perience and expertise in the world of cognac,has established a close relationship with designand creation; whether technical or artistic, inno-vation is very important to the team there. “Ourheritage and our savoir-faire have long beensources of inspiration and creativity for the stew-ards of knowledge that are our cellar masters, aswell as for the artists and designers who havecollaborated with our Maison”, says AugustinDepardon, Communication Director.

  6. 6. Productivity FACETUREDesign: Phil CuttanceThe FACETURE seriesconsists of handmadefaceted vessels,lampshades and sidetable. Each object isproduced individuallyby casting a water-based resin into a simplehandmade mould.The mould is manuallymanipulated to create theform of each object beforecasting, making everypiece utterly unique.Images by Petr Krejci& Phil Cuttancewww.philcuttance.com---------------------------------------The FACETURE processFirstly, the mould of the object ishand-made by scoring and cuttinga sheet of 0.5mm plastic sheet.This sheet is then folded, cut andtaped into the overall shape of theproduct that is to be cast. Themould’s final shape, and strength,is dictated by triangular facets thatare popped in and out. This isdone for every project, meaningthat no two castings are the same.The resin is poured into the hollowmould and rolled around to coatand encase the sides. Each vase,lightshade and side table ishandmade, unique, and numberedon the base.---------------------------------------The FACETURE machineSConstruction is simple andpurposeful, screwed together toallow it to be flat-packed forshipping. Wheels make themachine portable within aworkspace.The shelving beneath providesstorage for freshly cast pieces,and room for the casting stool.The ‘hopper’ holding theJesmonite powder is made frompolypropylene sheet, in the sameway as the moulds. The casting jigat the back of the machine issimple and allows me to peer intothe mould and control the flow ofthe fast-setting Jesmonite. Thismeans it is being cast evenly andeconomically, leaving a thin yetstrong wall thickness. It can beattached at two different widthsto accommodate different sizedmoulds, i.e. vases or a table.--------------------------------------- werner aisslinger designer wearing dr. ihab rough130 131
