A posthumous addition to Adolf Loos’ iconic glassware design for Lobmeyr, this champagne cooler was reconstructed by contemporary Viennese architects Hubmann & Vass from a small hand-sketched design of Adolf Loos found on the back of a postcard the Wiener Werkstatte design icon had left behind. Left aside in 1931 when Lobmeyr and Adolf Loos collaborated to create his untitled set (TS248), the champagne cooler reflects Loos’ uncompromising interest in essential and simple forms that perform and achieve a function. Each piece is mouth-blown by the master glassmakers of Lobmeyr and each of the diamond-cut bases is meticulously hand-cut and matte polished. Loos’ glass set has become one of the iconic glassware designs of the 20th Century and a staple in Lobmeyr’s ongoing design legacy.
A functional and yet visually appealing design, the polygon-shaped cooler and its diamond-cut base present a surprising optical effect. Loos designed this barware set with his favorite drink in mind, "Feingespritzter" – a mix of soda and Champagne.
