Cristal Carafe

Cristal

About

Simple & Practical

Cristal is all about the joy of sharing. The carafe comes with five cups in different colors that in a fun way makes Cristal both practical and decorative.

The unexpected contrast between the glass and the cups in plastic creates a pleasing dynamic of cold and warm materials, rigid lines and soft shapes which makes Cristal as visually captivating as it is refreshing.

Marcel Wanders explains: “I like to play around. I like it to be a little bit strange. For instance the combination of a carafe in glass and cups in plastic. It is that little creative thought that surprises you.”
