Cestini is a side table made of glass and basket weaving from Sardinia.
Sardinia has a rich culture of basketmaking, Cestini Sardi, continued with passion and dedication by the women in the villages and cities.
At Utopia & Utility we work exclusively with European crafts, and  it is the first time we are developing a range in collaboration with Italian craftsmen, and we are more than delighted to now include this beautiful old craft to our palette.

The 2017 reedition of the famous Branch Bowl.
A play on using natural elements with man made shapes: the branch bowl has a lid from a tree trunk with a branch stub and a bulbous glass body transforming it into an organic fruit shape. The glass part is free handblown, making each piece even more unique.

Inspired by a simple fix on an old sauna ladle handle, fixed with wire and outright everyday genius. Heiki (named after the man who invented the fix) are freehand blown containers, soft and bulbous, each a one-off.

Each Heiki Container has its unique handle, fixed onto it after the glass has cooled down. The handle is made in two parts, which are attached to one another on the glass piece itself through wrapping yarn or wire.
