For those persnickety consumers who always wanted to serve champagne vertically but never had the proper glassware to build the glistening, bubbling towers of their dreams -designer Sebastian Bergne has finally offered a solution: The Column Glass. Tongue-in-cheek melodrama aside, these containers are actually quite innovative and equal parts aesthetically appealing and functionally applicable. Just imagine how stunning a centerpiece several columns of freshly-poured, ice-cold champagne would make at a party or event. Additionally, as far as I’m concerned, any excuse not to drink out of a stemmed glass (which is sure to lead to spillage, breakage and other unpleasantries) is worth taking. Plus, Bergne is no slouch - this July he will be exhibiting some of his latest works at the first ever Haute Cuisine exhibition in Paris, a “festival of the best in gastronomy fashion and food” set to take place at the Jardins du Palais Royal.
