JHill's Featured in - The contemporary zeal of new Irish design

"In-the-know eyes are on Ireland, as designer-makers reinvigorate traditional crafts and local materials with contemporary élan. ... Waterford's historic association with crystal is being rejuvenated by J Hill's Standard, founded in 2014, through collaborations with contemporary designers such as Scholten & Baijings – each glass in the Dutch design duo's Elements series features an individual pattern of cuts. Italian designer Martino Gamper's Cuttings series takes a more sculptural approach to surface decoration, with distinctive cuts creating a strong, rugged effect.

J Hill's Standard Nominated in Best Tableware Category

"Anike Tyrrell, founder and creative director of J. HILL's Standard explains how the concept for the brand came about. "It struck me that there was potential to revive mouth-blown and hand-cut glass for a new user who would appreciate the time and skill involved in hand-making glass." Their goal is to create functional pieces, which are usable and accessible."

Father's Day 2016: Gifts for all of dad's hobbies

For the entertainer: From J Hill's Standard's Cuttings series, this lead crystal whiskey glass is designed for frequent use. Conceived by Italian-born, London-based designer Martino Gamper, the Cuttings collection is recognisable for the deep and distinct markings. We can neither endorse nor discourage 'frequent use,' we can only say it's for the father with good taste.

Makers & Brothers At Home

Makers & Brothers At Home is an exciting new iteration in our ongoing story that will see us carefully populate a quiet wing of a glorious Georgian pile. Amongst the traces of a refined yet dilapidated interior there will be a select gathering of some of our favourite local and international brands from the worlds of homeware, beauty, fashion and food. The fires will be lighting, the shelves stocked high and super seasonal food on offer from our favorite café - Bibi's. It will be our take on a more quiet, human approach to shopping in Dublin this winter.

November 28th to December 23rd.

The Souvenir Project | Film

The Souvenir Project was commissioned by Irish Design 2015 earlier this year. Produced by Makers & Brothers - "From the outset we wanted to create a project with meaning and depth that softly spoke of our time and place. We looked to explore new ground as well as revisiting old. The aim was to investigate the thinking behind the term souvenir and what it might mean today in an Irish context. For Makers & Brothers it has been about delicately filtering all this thinking through the local context and embracing the subtleties of the land, weather, histories and people."

J.HILL's Standard at the Salone-Milan April 11th to 15th 2015.

Nilufar Gallery will open its new showroom with a great private event: a dinner inside the 1500sq.m. of the store housing the great collection of historical and contemporary design assembled by gallery-owner Nina Yashar in 30 years of activity. More than 140 guests will dine in a unique atmosphere due to the strong contrast of the architectural project by Massimiliano Locatelli-CLS Architetti: 3 floors of metal frames inspired by the Teatro alla Scala in Milan, housing novelties and the great classics of the gallery. The room is articulated by wings and curtains, as in a theatre, starting from the central stage and the imposing, 6 metre long brass work by artist Leonor Antunes.

Dinner will be served in the wide central hallway furnished with author's tables and chairs, ever differing one from the other. The menu, created by Martino Gamper with Corrado Calza Food & Co, is a progression of dishes with Mediterranean tastes and Middle Eastern conviviality, served in Richard Ginori's chinaware from the Thirties and matched with 19th century napkins A 2006 Grand Vintage, one of the best proposals in the rich Moet & Chandon range, will be poured in precious glasses made of 'Cuttings' crystal by J. HILL's Standard, designed by Martino Gamper.

Location: Nilufar Depot: Monday 13th April Milan

London Design Festival Dinner

We celebrated the launch of J.Hill's Standard during the London Design Festival with a fabulous evening of food, friends, fine whiskey and cut crystal. Martino Gamper and Francis Upritchard hosted our intimate evening at their Hackney studio where we sat down to an exciting supper prepared by Arabeschi di Latte. We were joined by old and new friends for a warm and atmospheric evening of celebration – our first crystal collections were put to good use. Teeling Whiskey, a wonderful Irish craft whiskey producer, helped the evening along nicely.
