Christofle’s Newest Glassware Pairs Delicate Design With Durability

Get the scoop behind the Tourbillon collection.

June 23, 2024

Don’t let the dancing whorls and light-as-air contours of Christofle’s new Tourbillon stemware fool you: The elegant pieces, which reference techniques that date to ancient Mesopotamia— with pit stops in traditional glassblowing ateliers from Cairo to Murano to Beykoz, Turkey—are made of borosilicate glass. Translation: They’re dishwasher safe, making them equally ideal for exceptional evenings or everyday table settings.

The new collection is the brainchild of Alya Tannous, a Lebanese artist who was born in London, lived in Paris, and traveled extensively throughout the world. “My approach was influenced by where I’ve decorated, cooked, and hosted,” she says. “L’art de vivre in these different places gave me the confidence to mix styles without hesitation or worrying about provenance. It taught me to incorporate luxury in a relaxed way.”
