Ocean Glass enters luxury high ground with Lucaris
Creating a presence in the premium luxury segment of the glassware industry is no small feat. With a strategy anchored on quality, innovation and operational excellence, Ocean Glass is ready to take on long-standing European brands with its luxury crystal stemware, Lucaris.
"Never before in Asia has this kind of crystalline glassware been produced at this scale and quality," says Sunsanee Supatravanij, managing director. "The Lucaris brand is a testament that world-class quality can come out of Asia."
Lucaris, dubbed the crystal of modern Asia, is a fusion of Eastern expertise and Western technology, incorporating the glassmaking know-how of Ocean Glass and Japanese partner Toyo-Sasaki Glass with state-of-the-art technology from Germany. Ocean Glass is one of the few companies in the world to offer lead- and barium-free crystal glass with outstanding clarity, brilliance and durability. In numerous blind tests, wine enthusiasts and food service professionals chose Lucaris over the stemware of major European brands in terms of wine sensory, functionality and aesthetic quality.
Inspired by Asia's modern cities, Ocean Glass came up with four Lucaris collections - Bangkok Bliss, Tokyo Temptation, Shanghai Soul and Hong Kong Hip, all designed to bring the ultimate luxury in dining experience. The collections also represent the firm's renewed focus on Asia. "Outside of Thailand, Vietnam, China and India are our big markets," Sunsanee says. "We aim to own the most valuable tabletop glassware brand in Asia."
In the business for more than three decades, Ocean Glass has been providing befitting glassware for every occasion under its established Ocean and Ocean Professional brands. The firm's portfolio covers glassware for everyday use and a variety of professional-grade items for different dining atmospheres.
"We are not here to sell glassware, it's really about creating life's pleasures, being part of people's happiest times to eat, drink and be merry," Sunsanee says.
