Greg Natale launches 70s-inspired glassware (and a signature cocktail for summer)

Hospitality Design
WATCH: Highlights from the world of architecture and design.

Rig up the mirror ball, slip on your sequin-bedazzled bell bottoms and cue the best hits of the 1970s – interior designer Greg Natale has released disco-inspired glassware to partner with a summer of boogie nights at home. “I love a Studio 54 design moment,” says Greg, who has channelled the late 70s vibe into the sexy silhouettes of his ‘Rubell’ highball and tumbler sets. “Named after one of the co-owners of the New York club, they will bring a little disco to your dining room.”

Ideal for everyday use, the glassware also lends itself to a classic Campari and soda (pictured) or the gin-spiked, pink-hued Greg 54 cocktail (recipe below), created by the folk behind the bar at Dulcie’s nightspot in Sydney’s Kings Cross.
