Design Within Reach Drinkware
Massimo Vignellis iconic dinnerware won the prestigious Compasso dOro Award in 1964 and, in 1971, became the first product made by a company called Heller, now an international furniture manufacturer responsible for introducing the Bellini Chair®, Frank Gehry outdoor furniture and other icons of modern design.

DWR Exclusive A sleek example of cool minimalism, the Deneb Glass Table (1987) celebrates materials in their purest form, combining an austere aluminum frame with a clean-edged clear glass top. The frame is assembled from four elements, precision-engineered to fit seamlessly together in support of the tempered-glass top. Its legs are configured to increase the stability of the frame and to allow two or more tables to be put together to create a unified ensemble for dining or working. Available in a range of sizes that can be mixed and matched, the Deneb Glass Table is a stunning signature piece that you can build a room or office around. Design Within Reach is proud to be the exclusive retailer of Stua products in the U.S. Made in Spain. Materials: 10mm tempered glass; anodized aluminum frame.

DWR Exclusive In 1926, the Kispester-Granit factory in Budapest hired Eva Zeisel, who was 20 years old at the time, as a designer. It was only her first job, but the company was so impressed with her initial work that they created a special art department for her. The employees, who normally produced ceramic sinks, all wanted to work with Zeisel as she brought elegant vases, whimsical rhinoceros-shaped ashtrays and beautiful teapots into the product mix. The factory closed her department after just one year, but the experience sparked a brilliant career. Almost 60 years later, Zeisel returned to the factory and designed the Granit Collection (1983). Though widely exhibited, the set – which features her signature fluid, sensuous curves – wasnt put into production until 2009. DWR worked closely with Zeisel to ensure that Granit adheres to her exacting standards. I like the way the very thin, hard edges of the plates change into a soft, inviting bellybutton, she said. All the pieces together make a very nice family. The plates and bowls each feature a dimple in the center, and their matte white finish offers a neutral backdrop for culinary delights. This collection is food, microwave and dishwasher safe. Made in China. Materials: Stoneware. Measurements:Teacup: H 3.25" W 4.25" Saucer: H 1" Diameter 6.25"
Originally sketched on a napkin in 1964, Arne Jacobsens Cylinda Line (1967) stainless steel barware took three years, and the creation of new technology, to produce. Jacobsen insisted on seamless tubes with perfect brushed surfaces, and he continued to add new pieces – some designed by Peter Holmblad – to the collection until 1974. An immediate success, Cylinda Line was awarded the 1967 ID Prize by the Danish Design Council, and pieces of the line are included in the permanent collections of MoMA and the Victoria and Albert Museum. Made in China. Materials: Satin-polished 18/8 stainless steel. Measurements:H 9.5" Diameter 4"
