With a trio of geometric cocktail glasses, Argentinian designer Agustina Bottoni pays tribute to famous Italian architect Piero Portaluppi. Referencing his "modernist buildings in Milan in the 1930s and 1940s," the glassware enjoys a sculptural aesthetic that elevates the appearance of the object and its functionality. Agustina Bottoni focuses on one work in particular — the Villa Necchi Campiglio, designed in 1932.

The collection of geometric cocktail glasses goes by the name 'Calici Milanesi.' The architectural creations have a distinct high-class status that sets them apart from conventional glassware. The designer envisioned her collection as contributing to the "Milanese tradition of 'apertivo.'" This is a happening, where people come together, socialize, have a cocktail and enjoy a small break from their fast-paced lifestyle.
