Crucial Detail’s Boro explores light, transparency, and playful interactions – asymmetrically. It is made of low expansion glass which can easily handle a wide temperature range, allowing for tremendous creativity in plating and presentation, and is available in 6”, 8”, and 10” diameters. LMT is honored to be the first to bring this collection to the foodservice industry.
Boro is the culmination of years of Martin Kastner’s exploration of non-traditional manipulation of borosilicate glass. His goal was to simply create a depression in a flat pane of glass. A key element, Boro’s striking asymmetry, was also an impediment to manufacturing. Conventional techniques simply didn’t meet Martin’s exacting standards – they rarely do! After much experimentation, he developed a flame-forming technique and specialized tooling, that enabled a clean, perfectly fluid transition between the flat plane and a bowl. The bowls are now individually flame-formed and annealed at Crucial Detail – one of a kind production for a truly unique collection.
For more than a decade, Crucial Detail has explored the synergy of food and design, working at the forefront of fine dining in collaborations with the world’s best chefs. Each piece in the collection, whether for the tabletop or bar, is uniquely stylish, chef-driven, and forward thinking. Founder Martin Kastner has established himself as the most influential tableware designer in modern American history, sweeping design awards and helping Team USA secure their historic silver and gold wins at the world’s most prestigious culinary competition, Bocuse d’Or.
