Lobmeyr: Moiré

Lobmeyr: Moiré

Moiré - a luxury engraved glassware decor created by Bodo Sperlein as part of an ongoing design collaboration with Lobmeyr.

Drawing inspiration from the historic Moire silk-weaving technique, each piece showcases engraved ultra-thin and hand-blown muslin glassware. Moire, derived from the French word meaning "to water," captures the enchanting wavy and rippled texture found in silk.

The intricate Moiré design is delicately hand-engraved onto Lobmeyr's prestigious Alpha range of a candy dish, tumbler and carafe, introduced in 1952, harmoniously complementing its intricate patterns, and ensuring each piece is distinctive and unique.
