Fairfax and roberts home seven deadly sins 1

If you’re not familiar with Fairfax and Roberts Home then you probably don’t own finest tableware on the market today. Relying on European craftsmanship, the Australian company has a more than 160 year history of crafting “treasured possessions and heirlooms for princes, governors, and many of Australia’s finest families.” Fairfax and Roberts take your visions and then turn them into realities rendered in Limoges porcelain.

For the Seven Deadly Sins set of glasses, Fairfax and Roberts turned to Adolf Loos, an architect known for his design of timeless tumblers dating back to 1931. At the time, Loos suggested that the geometric patterns he had designed his glasses with should one day be replaced with motifs on the base. His suggestion was “butterflies, small animals, and the nude human form.” Eighty years later, and that suggestion is being carried out, albeit not with the images Loos had dreamt of. The illustrations of the seven deadly sins were created by Stefan Sagmeister, a graphic designer born in Austria.
