Sugar Dandy– A series by Åsa Jungnelius
Sugar Dandy was designed according to Åsa Jungnelius’ vision of a set table.
“My inspiration for this series comes from the fashion world. I want to contribute to the opportunity to add an individual, colorful and personal touch to our homes. With this series, I want to break down traditional rules and etiquette by creating aesthetically appealing pieces that allow for unique table settings. I’ve created Coupe in an oversized format, which makes for a ceremonious occasion each time these glasses are brought out. It also takes a little concentration to drink sparkling wine from them.” – Åsa Jungnelius
