Competition! WIN a pair of Blade Runner Alnolfo di Cambio whiskey glasses
The Blade Runner competition is now closed, lost in time, like tears in the rain. Thanks to all those who took time to enter!
The winner of the online competition is Alex Perkins.
And the winner over on Twitter is ‘A’.
We’ll be in touch about sending you both your very handsome boxed pair of whiskey glasses, with big thanks to our friends at Arnolfo Di Cambio.
And the answer? It was the Ennis House (also referred to as the Ennis Brown house) designed by Frank Lloyd Wright which was used as the exterior of Deckard’s apartment block.
Let’s do this again sometime. I’m sure we’ll have much to discuss on the matter when the sequel surfaces…
In celebration of Blade Runner: The Final Cut (one of the greatest Sci-Fi’s ever made) coming back to big screens across the UK in April 2015, we launch a competition not to be missed!
Win a boxed set of not one, but TWO ‘Blade Runner glasses’ (worth just under £100 inc p&p) – the exact ‘CIBI’ glass tumbler design that Deckard (Harrison Ford) is seen drinking whiskey from in Blade Runner (1982). Probably the coolest whiskey tumbler ever designed, the 1974 tumbler is a ‘Double Old Fashion’ made from hand blown crystal glass. They’re still in production by the Arnolfo di Cambio company which was founded in Tuscany, Italy in 1963 and in the course of three generations has become one of Italy’s leading glass manufacturers.
We can confirm first-hand (having tried and tested our own set here at Film and Furniture) that these are stunning, weighty glasses. As FF guest writer Matt Cole puts it, in his investigation into Blade Runner design (read it here >): “a serious Whiskey glass surely built with Future-Noir, Replicant Hunting, Killer Cops in mind” and have come directly from Arnolfo di Cambio, especially for dedicated Film and Furniture fans.
To win, please answer the following question:
Deckard’s apartment block exterior was shot at which Frank Lloyd Wright building?
(Spoiler: You can find the answer in our Blade Runner feature)
Answer in the comment box below by Monday 9th March 8pm GMT.
Other entrants won’t see/can’t copy your answer until we approve the comment – which we won’t do until we announce the winner. Feel free to embellish your answer with any Blade Runner geeky insights, but that’s not essential.
We’re also running a simultaneous competition over on Twitter (@) to win a second pair. Tweet us with a review of Blade Runner in 100 characters using the hashtag #FF100BRunner. Enter both! Why not?
As Ridley Scott once said “I’ve never paid quite so much attention to a movie, ever. But we had to create a world that supported the story’s premise, made it believable. Why do you watch a film seven times? Because somebody’s done it right and transported you to its world.” Amen Ridley. But only seven times?… Too much is never enough so we suggest you take a look at the listing of UK cinema’s showing this classic movie throughout April on the BFI website and if you can’t bear the suspense of a competition you can also buy the glasses from Hard to Find Whiskey.
