The idea of the Calypso collection was born during the lock-down: for all the people who weren’t directly touched by the virus, the months of forced closure were indeed a moment of deep reflection, but also a stressful situation, to which, in many cases, we vented through drinking and eating. This compulsiveness stole the joy of these gestures, usually linked to sociability, that’s why Serena Confalonieri had the idea of working on objects that could bring joy and lightness back to these moments.
She imagined a collection that could give the idea of drinking from colorful and exotic flowers, as if, instead of confined to our homes, we were on a beautiful desert island and were enjoying the sweetness of its lush nature.
Calypso is a hand-blown borosilicate glass collection, made in Italy.
