With its clean, softly curved lines and the mesmerising, vertical ripple pattern, this sophisticated yet informal NUDE Opti centrepiece presents a timeless and luxe quality. Designed by Defne Koz and carved from lead-free crystal, the resulting object is as versatile as it is simple and puts the beauty of the crystalline glass front and centre.
The mastery and craftsmanship of handmade glass is a signature of NUDE.
NUDE prides itself in its artisanal approach to glassware, specializing in handmade, pure crystalline glass, be the pieces blown or press-blown. With their Master blowers, NUDE continues to hand
make much of the world’s most acclaimed glassware.
We recommend washing this product by hand using a soft sponge, brush or by hand.
Please avoid using the scourer side of the sponge as it will create scratching on the surface of the glass.
After hand washing let the product dry. Finish cleaning by drying and polishing the product using a soft cloth, preferably micro fiber.
Turkish industrial designer Defne Koz studied at Domus Academy in Milan before joining the studio of Memphis legend Ettore Sottsass. Her work synthesizes her Turkish roots with Italian culture and explores a wide range of product types. It humanizes new technologies, rediscovers artisanry, and highlights material sensuality. With Marco Susani in Chicago, Koz co-founded Koz Susani Design to create high-tech devices, high-touch materials and interaction design, luxury crafts, mass-manufactured products and domestic objects. Koz has earned awards from Elle Decor International, RedDot and the German Design Council while her work has been exhibited around the globe, from Milan’s Triennale and MARTa Herford to Galleria Post Design and Ozone Gallery Tokyo.
