Architect Adolf Loos was clearly ahead of his time when he designed his famous Drinking set no. 248 for Lobmeyr, the Austrian glass manufacturer, in 1931. Today, this sober cut with its brilliant pattern on the base and matt-polished surface enjoys cult status around the world, and it’s not showing any signs of ageing. The service has been a major source of inspiration for modern-day glass designers.
