Objects La Doublej Glasses
Former style journalist, the exuberant JJ Martin, is also known for being an excellent host and she has channelled her knowledge into creating some fine tableware, handmade in her adopted country of Italy. The American born entrepreneur, turned to Salviati, the Murano based glassmaker (founded in 1859) to make brilliant vessels for her lifestyle brand, La Double J. For the first edition, she looked to Salviati’s archive and resurrected the ornate and intricate ‘tipetti’ glasses which became fashionable in the 19th century for ceremonies. The collaboration continues with JJ and Salviati finding a happy balance between functionality (the glasses are dishwasher friendly) and exquisite style. The Rainbow Set features four glasses in yellow, red, pink, and cobalt blue with rippling rigadin surfaces. Each is handblown thus unique and finished with a contrasting colour rim: perfect for a celebratory bellini as the sun sets.
