Hans Harald Rath designed the "Alpha" set in 1952. The simple and clear shape of tumbler was inspired by a Baroque copper cup from the collections of the MAK Vienna, itself influenced by Islamic works.
Reflecting the lifestyle of the 50ies, the glasses are fully stackable. Finest muslin glass, mouth-blown into wooden forms, provides for their elegance.
In 1964 the series was awarded the German National Design Prize "Gute Form". Today some of the shapes are available in six light colours.
Citron, Rosalin, Amethyst, Light Blue, Light Green, Grey and Clear

Lobmeyr began in 1823 when Josef Lobmeyr, an Austrian from a glass-cutting family business, first opened a small glassware shop in Weihburggasse, Vienna. The shop began by selling exquisite works produced by the most important Bohemian glass manufacturers of the day. Now in its 6th generation, the brand’s success lies not only in a genuine love of glass but also their passion to contemporary interpretation.
The input of invited designers has always formed a big part of Lobmeyr’s development, starting from the collaboration with well-known architects Josef Hoffmann and Adolf Loos in the early 20th century to jewelry designer Ted Muehling today. All of them understand the spirit of Lobmeyr and fulfill the needs for those who seek the finest quality and craftsmanship. You can still find Lobmeyr design all over the world including MoMA in New York, V&A Museum in London and MAK in Vienna.
