Prestigious NY NOW trade show recognizes Carmona-designed
glassware series as “Best New Product” in Winter 2020

NEW YORK, NY, March 15, 2020 — Carmona New York, a Brooklyn-based product design firm, is honored to have one of its product designs selected for an industry award.

NY NOW is the largest wholesale trade show in America, representing over 2,300 brands and tens of thousands of products. The “Best New Product” Award for Spring 2020 season in “Tabletop + Gourmet Housewares” was given to glassware manufacturer JoyJolt, for its “Aqua Vitae” series, designed by Tammy Carmona.

The “Aqua Vitae” series of crystal barware features an innovative offset design, available in several stylish shapes. The series is offered in shot glass, whiskey glass, and martini glass versions, with round, triangular, square, and octagonal base shapes. A crystal cake stand rounds out the collection. The award-winning collection was designed by Tammy Carmona in 2018, as the “Carre” series, and expanded throughout 2019 with additional shapes and formats, culminating in the impressive offering showcased at the Winter 2020 NY Now show.

Tammy Carmona explains the artistic vision behind this product line: “I was inspired by the shapes of ice cubes floating in the cocktail, and I wanted to immortalize the transient geometry of the ice in a more permanent medium. By creating the glass that pays homage to the floating ice within, the concept of ‘container as reflection of its contents’ was born, paving the way to an entire line of glassware that brought much-needed innovation to a centuries-old medium.”

The “Aqua Vitae” glassware collection provides a unique and elegant presentation solution for high-end drinking establishments as well as discerning personal users. The thick base construction and durable glass stand up to commercial use, including in-glass muddling and mixing – an important consideration for bar owners and restaurateurs.

The NY NOW award is the latest in a long line of accolades for Tammy Carmona and Carmona New York – an impressive collection that includes dual selections in “Oprah’s Favorite Things” List, triple championships in the “Tulips & Pansies” floral design competition, features in multiple industry magazines, and several set design awards for the wedding scene in “Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part II”.
