We are busy to produce new glass, new sizes, new patterns for the upcoming season A/W 2019 - more to come soon…
This is a new colour from the darker range, it´s dark violet black, which is not only very beautiful, this colour also provides the best protection against light to keep the coffee fresh. The outer impression of this glass is nearly black with a hint of violet when you have some counter light available. If you open the lid you can see that beautiful dark violet for sure, especially at the thinner parts where you can find the bullseye bubbles. This picture shows that dark violet glass combined with a set of matte DLC (Diamond-Like-Carbon) coated metal parts which are a good match indeed.
We recommend this colour also for Coffee Shops, Bars, kitchens or any locations where the grinders are exposed to bright sunlight. As we like this colour very much, we are going to make more tests soon here with different patterns and designs.
With finding more and more high-end grinders and premium burrs in the market we also notice a higher demand for special glass hoppers, unique pieces and Art Glass as there is no need for an upgrade concerning the quality of the coffee and most of the grinder designs are timeless at all or even old-fashioned like many big Mazzers or the famous EK43 made by Mahlkoenig. Another good example of a special Art Piece is this Amber 600 hopper that comes with glossy DLC metal parts and a spiral + bubbles design. The problem of the unique pieces is to meet the exact requirements of the customer e.g. the right colour, the right design or a special pattern. Doing those Art pieces also means that we usually have to make more pieces to test and to be sure as you can only judge after having finished the glass in the cold workshop. As for this, it´s really important to discuss the wishes in detail before the final order is made. I guess it´s also clear that we can´t exchange Art Pieces which are made on demand and that those pieces need a much longer delivery time than the standards.
For the future, we will try to produce and keep some specials and limited editions in stock but of course, you will never know.
We think that you might like it if we will come up with a TORR TOYS "MOOD BOOK" soon. You can see the first results In our GLASS BLOG now. In addition to that we try to find some natural and organic patterns where we will check the possibilities to transfer them into our glass designs. We are really curious about this experiments.
