Not since man first figured out a transparent and user friendly material could be produced from ordinary ingredients such as soda, lime and silica has there been such an important and ground-breaking innovation than the development of Kwarx technology in glass and stemware.
The Romans may well have been the original innovators of glass, or glesum, meaning a transparent, lustrous substance, but it was the French, of the new millennium, who changed the functionality and appearance of glass forever with Kwarx technology.
The Glass-making Method
Although the actual method and superior blend of ingredients, which elevates glassware to an entirely new and ultra modern dimension, is a closely guarded secret, the technology behind Kwarx ensures permanent lustre, unparalleled clarity and additional strength – the latter crucial to the UK glassware hire industry.
The importance of the perfect glass to accompany the finest of wines has long been overlooked. The latest trend to serve and imbibe ‘new’ wines instead of cellar wines has, however, demanded innovative and superior glassware to best enhance the intrinsic qualities of these wines. Claimed to be a result of a fine synthesis of human endeavour, new and innovative treatment methods, an entirely new manufacturing process and a blend of rare raw materials, Kwarx was specifically designed with wine tasting or oenology in mind.
A New Range is Born
This is where the Chef & Sommelier Open Up range has stepped in. One of the first stemware lines to boast the pioneering spirit of Kwarx, this range has a number of elements crucial to the full-throated enjoyment of the wine, not least the lustre, transparency and powerful resilience associated with the new material.
- Fine rims, measuring 0.9mm, elevates the Open Up range to that of hand blown lead crystal, but without the fragility.
- The upper part of the bowl is rounded inwards facilitating the timeous release of heady aromas and flavours, whilst at the same time providing an exact measure for the correct amount of wine the glass should hold to best effect.
- Long stems complement the clean, angular lines of the Open Up bowl.
- Flat bases ensure maximum stability. Accompanied by the new-found strength of Kwarx glass, the Open Up range is virtually indestructible!
