Michael Anastassiades designed sommelier collection for Puiforcat

Michael Anastassiades created a sommelier collection for Puiforcat that is based on the science behind wine tasting. Puiforcat is a renowned silversmith studio, whose tendency to avoid embellishments and to blend in other precious materials like exotic wood, leads to pieces of utmost sophistication and quality. No wonder that in 1993, the Hermés group bought the company, ensuring a smooth road down the luxury goods road. As part of their aim to cover all segments of a luscious life, they collaborated with designer Michael Anastassiades for a line of objects enhancing wine tasting. Such a venture can go astray if a professional is not involved, therefore they invited Lombard Enrico Bernardo, 2004’s best sommelier and Michelin-starred restaurant owner, to supervise the process.

First of all, Bernardo and Anastassiades had to resolve an important tension: the problematic pairing of wine and metal. The solution was simple: keep them separate. The stems typical of wine glasses were removed, and the bowls rest now on a metal stand. The decision to leave out the stem was based on the observation that Bernardo’s guests tend to grab their glasses at their base. Other aspects of the design are also based on real-life, physical considerations.The exact dimensions of the glasses were calculated by the sommelier to let the best characteristics of wine shine through. The conical shape focuses attention on the wine, while it also slows down the oxidation process. A discrete ridge was formed at the sides, suggestive of the ideal amount for the perfect tasting experience.

The accompanying objects also support this experience: the tulip-shaped liquor glass prevents evaporation of aromas, while a narrow vessel was also designed that is more suited for serving dessert wines. One should not forget that while extremely functional, the collection is aesthetically pleasing as well; the sculptural pieces bring in a sense of well-constructed sophistication to the dining table.
