Le Muse Decanter
All prices include VAT
Designed by Paolo Metaldi, Le Muse is a collection of handmade decanters made in tribute to Greek mythology and its divinities, celebrated in dances, music, and feasts in which the wine flowed. Le Muse decanters are each shaped to reference these ancient times. The Leda decanter with its sinuous shape recalls Greek mythology; the long-tapered neck mimics the swan, the animal into which Zeus transforms himself in the famous myth.
About the Brand
As it has been for 100 years, Ichendorf’s goal is the pursuit of beauty with authentic shapes. The company’s history began in the early years of the twentieth century in a small town near Cologne where master-glaziers used a mix of substances, including silica, to give shape to objects to meet the refined taste of that period. As creators of precious ornaments, Ichendorf was a leader in its field until the 1950s when it changed objectives and began to focus on clean shapes and purity of materials. Old form and adornment were abolished and in 1990, Ichendorf reestablished itself in Milan, a creative center for artists and designers.
Today, the strength of the Ichendorf brand is linked to the longevity of its collections, some of which have been on the market for over 50 years. Every single object is a new story, a new adventure through which designers and artists come in contact with the very heart of the material to reach its unlimited possibilities. Every creation combines different components into a single, poetic shape, depicting a continuous search for details while always respecting history and expertise. The result is a synergy between modern style and traditional material, an ongoing and meticulous collaborative work that guarantees the longevity of Ichendorf objects through time.
This constant interaction between tradition and interaction is always aimed in the pursuit of beauty in its purest forms, giving life to all Ichendorf objects. In the new collections we find objects that take their places in modern homes sharing delicacy, elegance, and brilliance, all lasting tributes to great design.
