Tableware specialist Utopia has revealed its first new products brochure of 2020.
Within the publication’s 33 pages are newly-launched fine glassware, polycarbonates, cutlery, tealights and tableware. There are 250 items to choose from and they are all in stock.
One of the latest tabletop series is Omega in vitrified porcelain, which combines a contemporary design of shallow bowl shape, a natural mottled outer shell with a black inner. There are two very shallow straight-sided bowls measuring 26cm and 18.5cm with a small slightly higher sided 6.25cm bowl. This smallest bowl sits inside the larger ones to separate serving items.
While both the Shield and Apollo tableware ranges feature a metallic look, also new on offer are Utopia’s tealight holders. These are available in different textures, shapes and colours including ribbed, bubbled, criss-crossed and swirled finishes.
In glassware, the latest additions are four new toughened stacking ranges: Grande Sunray, Hill, Timeless Vintage, and Highness. Another alternative are the Leafy glasses with their more chunky shape.
The Savage range of cocktail glasses are long-stemmed and include a coupetini, a pony and a coupe, all created with the collaboration of mixologist Remy Savage.
On the polycarbonate front, Utopia is introducing its Lucent plastics range. These are suitable for both indoor and outside events where safety is an overriding concern. The Lucent vintage martini glass is said to give texture and shape to the serve while being clear, safe and durable. The Symphony glasses are available in classic shapes such as stacking hiball and old fashioned.
The Umana collection of glassware is by Italian sommelier Maurizia Dante Fillipi using a ‘handmade by machine’ design. The technology produces products that are machine made but claimed to be indistinguishable from handmade products. The collection includes tulip-shaped glasses for red and white wines, a more bulbous shape for red wines, a still water tumbler and a sparkling water tumbler.
The Astoria cutlery range, designed by product designer, Nick Holland, is a reinterpretation of Art Deco style, featuring a plain design and 100% brushed polish.
