Drinking Set No. 284 Alphabet

Manufacturer Lobmeyr
Designer Formafantasma

The Alphabet collection is composed of 12 wine and water glasses. The design highlights the pleasure of diversity within a group, while toying with the rules of table setting.
The prototypes of the series were designed in 2013 for the Geymüllerschlössel Dining Room as part of The Stranger Within, a site-specific installation commissioned by the MAK Museum in Vienna. Each of the set’s 12 pieces is engraved with a singular pattern. In reference to the Lobmeyr archives and the decor of the shop, the design suggests a different way of arranging the pieces on a table. Like a crystal dome covering a still-life, the upside-down wine tumbler can be placed inside the water tumbler, allowing their unique ornamentations to be re-combined time and time again – a collection of miniature “miracle worlds”. Two slender, golden lines indicate the positioning of a perfect arrangement.
The preservation of plants and animals for decorative purposes was a popular pastime among members of the Biedermeier era’s upper class society – with the salon serving as something between a hobby room and cabinet of curiosities. A bouquet of artificial flowers made of butterfly wings and a musical clock with mechanical, singing stuffed birds are just two of the sources of inspiration for the Alphabet Drinking Set.
