When Harrison Ford and Ryan Gosling, stars of the sequel to the science fiction film Blade Runner – ‘Blade Runner 2049‘ – get together with Producer Ridley Scott and Director Denis Villeneuve, what do we see in their midst? It’s our old and trusted friend, the stunning glass tumbler which played a starring role in the 1982 film.
The recently released press photo shown above implies the glass will also appear in the hugely anticipated sequel which is due for release in October 2017 (Note: Since this feature was published we can confirm the Cibi glasses do indeed appear in Blade Runner 2049, as seen in the headquarters of Wallace Corporation).
Probably the coolest tumbler ever made, the 1974 Arnolfo di Cambio CIBI Blade Runner glass is a ‘Double Old fashion glass’ made from hand blown crystal glass. It is still in production by The Arnolfo di Cambio company which was founded in Tuscany, Italy in 1963 and in the course of 45 years and three generations has become one of Italy’s leading glass manufacturers.
Deckard takes a sip of whiskey from this glass at a key reflective moment in the original film which has become a firm cult classic. Tried and tested by Film and Furniture, these heavy weight, stunning glasses command respect.
