We live in a confusing world; too many choices, too many products, too much 'noise'. NUDE believes things can be different; the remedy is simple.
Simple is Beautiful
Simple is pure. Simple is essential. And the idea of simplicity is the guiding principle of NUDE. NUDE believes Less is More and that Form is best when it meets Function. NUDE refines everything to its essence, decluttering and distilling. This makes the final object simple to both understand and use. The result is perfectly reflected in NUDE crystalline glass.
Design is at the heart of NUDE. Our portfolio of glassware is designed by a pool of leading international talents. NUDE is always at the forefront of innovative ideas and develops dynamic collaborations with a wide roster of artists and designers. NUDE prides itself on being brave, non-conformist, and individual, our products delivering a level of quality and imagination that is unparalleled.
The mastery and craftsmanship of handmade glass is a signature of NUDE. NUDE prides itself in its artisanal approach to glassware, specialising in handmade, pure crystalline glass, be the pieces blown, pressed, or press-blown. With 350 Master blowers, NUDE continues to handmake much of the world’s most acclaimed glassware.
The key feature of lead-free crystal glass is that the minerals it contains strengthen the material, making it possible to produce highly durable but incredibly refined and gossamer-thin glassware. Crystalline glass captures the light, delivering sparkling clarity. It also adds resonance to the glass. This brings out the full colours and textures of the best wines, champagnes and liquors.
Established in 1935 by Ataturk, the father of Turkey, the Şişecam Group has become a world leader in glass manufacture and design. In 2014, Şişecam created its first contemporary design brand NUDE, dedicated to creating exceptional glassware for modern living. NUDE benefits from more than 85 years of tradition, wisdom and expertise. The result is reflected both in its glass products and its core value: Simple is Beautiful.
The Architecture of Space
Everything that exists was once only imagined. The objects we choose, the interior we design, the rooms we furnish, the way we eat and drink. Like a blank page waiting for the pen or a stage waiting for a performance, the way we choose to curate our personal world shapes our surroundings, and so shapes us. It reflects us and defines us. At NUDE we believe in offering select pieces for the architecture of space, contemporary design for a modern way of living.
Designed in Istanbul
Istanbul is the crucible of Turkish manufacturing and creativity. It is a city of great inventors, great traders, great people. Istanbul is the cradle of civilisation, proudly mixing the old with the new. Its manufacturers are the engine of growth. Yet its spirit has always centred on creativity, beauty and design. NUDE comes from this same tradition; outward-looking, but always remembering where it’s from.
