    The range ESSENCE was designed by the Swiss-Argentinian designer Alfredo Häberli. As onecan read on the internet. "Radically simple. Alfredo Häberli suggested a new series of glassware with an essential idea: have as few glasses as possible, while still being able to serve a full range of fine wines. The Essence glasses have become a true demonstration of thoughtful design. Standing next to each other, they create a wonderful sense of balance. This is due to the fact that the stem and base of each glass are the same size, while the tumblers share similar proportions. They are easy to grasp and handle, and we suspect they make fine wines even more enjoyable.".

    though I haven't got any of the drinking glasses,I've got the two jugs hedesigned for it. Thebig one was the original design, but the small one is but a couple of years old.
