In classical and Etruscan cultures the “kylix” was a drinking cup for wine and symbolised the banquet. Originally made of ceramics, this cup was had a large upper cup, almost like a plate, supported by a raised foot. Some archaeological finds of this type are housed in the Wine Museum in Torgiano and in major world museums.
Today’s social occasions involving food and drink are stand up events. This project gives you the chance to hold both cup and plate in one hand as they just slot together. The new “kylix” becomes an up-to-date product for the increasingly popular contemporary banquet.
