Claus Riedel, Austrian Glassworks.
« on: March 24, 2008, 11:56:39 AM »
Hi, During my work on the films I have recently posted I 'Googled' Claus Riedel. It seems that he was well respected in his field.
Quote from the Times March 27, 2004 reads.
"Claus Josef Riedel was a ninth-generation glassmaker who succeeded in producing the first wine-specific glassware — termed the Sommeliers collection — in 1973. He recognised that a glass alters the perception of a wine. His revolutionary stemware philosophy was that form should follow function and content command shape."

Regards Patrick.

Hi Patrick,
An interesting quote from the Times....
Quote
His revolutionary stemware philosophy was that form should follow function
Hardly a breakthrough, just one of the basic tenets of Bauhaus design, as theorized by Hermann Muthesius and Walter Gropius, around fifty years earlier.
Regards,
Marcus
