Ega was born from the idea of imprisoning in the shape of the glass the instant the drop leaves the rock. The shape of the elongated bottle, the light weight of the glass, Ega seems designed to stand on the table without invading the spaces but to enhance them in elegance. The glass drop encloses inside it, in relief, the rock that generated it: the real plus of Ega is in fact the shaped bottom that depicts the peaks of the Dolomites from which this precious water flows.
The choice of material to produce Ega was immediate, glass as a fully recyclable material not only gives value to the bottle itself but makes it an object that can have a new life beyond the table of the restaurant or your home. A design object decorated with great elegance that can then also become a furnishing accessory in rooms. For this purpose a screw cap closure was chosen, totally in aluminium without visible plastic parts, which allows to close the bottle endless times keeping the packaging visually unchanged.
Ega will be produced in a glassworks in Italy at the forefront for the attention to the environment where the glass is produced in oxy-fuel ovens that allow to reduce by 70% the polluting emissions into the environment. 30% of the heat produced by glass melting plants is then recovered and used for district heating in the town where the glassworks is located.
