Duralex glasses | Glasses that taste of childhood

4310-Duralex

Since 1946, the Gigogne glasses by Duralex have been part of the lives of thousands of children at the school canteen.

Generations of children have had fun and teased each other about their age from the number printed at the bottom of the glasses. The number is actually that of the mould which was used to manufacture these little round glasses. The Gigogne became a huge success in the 1960s and in the 1970s it was sold in more than 120 countries. Made from reinforced glass that makes it incredibly resistant, this glass has never stopped being the favourite of school canteens and families alike. In 2007, the almost unbreakable little round glass with the taste of childhood joined the exhibition “Editer le design” at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs as an object that is part of French heritage. It has also been recognised by the Museum of Modern Art in New York which recently welcomed it into its collections.
