Photograph of the Classico goblets designed by Lella Vignelli and Massimo Vignelli for Japanese manufacturer Sasaki in 1986.

Text from design: Vignelli exhibition label:
Classico Goblets; Sasaki, Japan 1986.
This line of crystal represents what we always looked for and never found: a simple geometric glass, half a sphere plus a cylinder on a straight stem, with minimal contact joints. “if you can’t find it, design it,” we say all the time. This is a perfect example. Collection: Cooper-Hewitt Museum, New York.
