Mobles 114Marquina 1961 (1961), Rafael Marquina
Rafael Marquina i Audouard (1921-2013) is a Catalan designer and architect. In 1961 Marquina created a revolutionary oil/vinegar recipient that does not drip or become dirty. It has been an object of numerous copies at worldwide level and has become one of the most iconic products in the history of Spanish design.
These glass bottles feature a flared neck that prevent prevent drips from running down the outside. The neck acts as funnel that forces the drips inside the bottle, and the ground glass of the opening and stopper keeps them firmly together. The Marquina 1961 oil and vinegar container reinterprets an object of daily use and ingeniously resolves the problem of drips. It is a clear example of how objects evolve under the aegis of design. The only version authorized by Marquina is manufactured by Mobles 114.
