Anonymity seems a strange value to have for a brand these days. However, it makes complete sense when delving into the ethos of Studio Tetatet – a lovely new design studio specialising in a very edited range of glassware. The duo behind Tetatet prefer to go unnamed, they’d rather their customer not be influenced by their individual personalities, “(our glasses) are everyday practical objects, we want our customer to show us how they can become a part of their incredibly personal and unique day.” The brand subscribes to the philosophy of spontaneity –there’s no predetermined release dates or PR schedules to abide by, “our aim has always been to create something that is fluid and informal.”

The initial offering of glassware consists of one style, two sizes and two colours – clear and a raspberry cordial pink. The vessels feel sublime in hand (even more so when cradling wine, in my opinion) the glass is thin but sturdy, the shape feels ergonomic and is clean cut. ‘Line one’ as it’s called, took one year from sketch to completion, the aim to “create something practical that also makes you feel uncomfortable, the shape is deliberately exaggerated and forces you to acknowledge the experience you’re having.” Although our experience of the products hasn’t resulted in any form of discomfort (quite the opposite) this idea of mindfulness when engaging with practical objects is certainly something we can relate to, “they kind of jolt you into the present and help bring attention to everyday situations.”

These aren’t the type of glasses you hide away in the cupboard – they look fantastically sculptural when stacked and colour layered or diluted. They are pieces to be treasured and admired every day, and with new colours (we can look forward to amber, yellow and red iterations come summer), and plates and bowls on the way, Studio Tetatet objects certainly allude to becoming collectables. Although the pair admit to glass being their first love, they are “inspired to use other common materials in new ways,” telling INPRINT there are objects made from metal and terrazzo and even furniture to look forward to. One thing we do know for sure this is a we look forward to continuing.
