L'Anatra: Ventura Smooth Bent Brandy
Product Number: 002-023-0941
There's no mistaking that L'Anatra flow. While the style of line and gesture found in this elegant bent Brandy isn't found in every bent pipe L'Anatra makes, unsurprising given the broad design spectrum Massimo Palazzi and Andrea Pascucci work in, when it does crop up, it makes for a uniquely graceful silhouette the origins of which can readily be identified without any need whatsoever to check logos or stamping. The way they approach the lenticular cross-section of shank that typically accompanies such designs, sweeping its edges down to meet the plane of the bowl's underside, rather than simply merging it into the rear of the bowl, also happens to make for a very, very comfortable arrangement in hand, the edge-lines' paths simultaneously accentuating the shaping's flow while also keeping them out of the way of your thumb.
