Stem Zero, a simple and elegant range of highly sophisticated stemware, global design brand Nude presents the Stem Zero with Ion Shielding Technology, reinforcing the previously delicate collection, making it twice as strong and flexible as other handmade glasses of similar thinness.

By experimenting with strengthening techniques and supressing the micro-fissures that cause glass to crack, Nude has employed a special surface modification technology, based on an ion-exchange process. These larger ions, incorporated to the glass’ surface structure and replacing the smaller ions which cause strains, form compressive stress and make the glasses more robust and more suitable for everyday use.

Following Nude’s ethos of keeping things simple and beautiful, the German Design Award Bronze winner and Red Dot awarded Stem Zero range consists of 16 glasses; each designed to enhance the experience of different wines. Champagne flutes are perfectly suited to all sparkling wines with a softly tapered brim to retain aroma and fizz. Sensuously shaped and effortlessly graceful Aromatic White Wine glasses intensify the crispness and elegance of delicate whites. Full-bodied White Wine glasses offer a larger bowl, which allow the complex wines to shine, revealing fruity overtones and oak barrel creaminess.

To complete the collection, Nude has also created two distinct Stem Zero glasses for red wine. Elegant Red Wine glasses are subtle and light, sweeping towards the brim to amplify high-tone perfumes of lighter reds including Pinot Noir. Finally, for Powerful Red Wines, Nude have created a glass with a generous bowl, tapering to a crystal cut edge to capture both aromas and bouquet, allowing for maximum appreciation of tannic reds such as Cabernet or Syrah. Each Stem Zero glass comes packaged in simple yet tactile packaging, which has been awarded a special mention in the German Design Awards.
