To celebrate the holiday season, Campbell-Rey were commissioned by 1stdibs to create a gift for their 200 most valued wholesale customers. Inspired by their passion for l’art de table and a spirit of conviviality, they looked to the geometry of art deco architecture to create an interlocking salt and pepper set crafted from Murano glass. The striking pieces were crafted in pink and cognac glass, an alluring palette which gives a nod to the 1970s, and elevates an everyday household item into a collectable objet d’art.
Created in collaboration with Laguna B, one of the most respected glassmakers in Murano, each piece was hand blown and moulded by a master craftsman in the Venetian Lagoon using techniques that have remained largely unchanged since the thirteenth century.
