There are many types of glass in existence, but
all are materials that show their nature. In glass,
quality and defects are there for all to see, so
much so that a drinking glass of good design and
quality can appear almost magical.
For this reason, EGO produces all its glassware in Europe, following the ancient traditions of master glass makers and using only the very best, blown glass with 93% transparency. This is the starting point and the inspirational raw material for all EGO's refined glass designs.
To paraphrase Kant, design without quality is vain, while quality without design is blind.
This point was certainly not wasted on the international judges who selected EGO's 'Character' series as the winner of all five iF Awards and the 'Diamond' carafe as the 2011 winner of the prestigious RedDot Award.
