Cumbria Crystal champagne flutes for Bentley Bentayga Mulliner

Bentayga Mulliner crystal champagne flutes

In 2017, Cumbria Crystal was awarded an exclusive contract by Bentley to produce luxury crystal champagne flutes for the new Bentayga Mulliner. The new flagship Bentayga model reaches new heights of interior cabin luxury and redefines the benchmark for automotive luxury.

Chris Blade, managing director of Cumbria Crystal said “We are proud that Bentley Mulliner placed so much faith in Cumbria Crystal by inviting us to develop and manufacture the exquisite and highly unusual champagne flutes for the new Bentayga Mullier SUV. The design teams at Mulliner were extremely supportive throughout the development process and placed complete trust in us to develop these extraordinary flutes, which come as standard. This is the beginning of an exciting ongoing collaboration, with additional products already being discussed. Bentley, Mullier and Cumbria Crystal offers an exciting fusion of luxury, engineering and British craftsmanship. These champagne flutes are exclusively available with the car.”

The AI & Digital Craftsmanship Concept

The Bentley EXP100GT forms a 3D canvas enabling light to communicate through uniquely crafted elements within the digital hand-made concept, fusing materials and technology in a unique and innovative way. The detail and perfection of material craftsmanship is also reflected through craft and curation of light. Specially developed software orchestrates thousands of separate LEDs throughout the car, enabling unique interactions within its wider environment and bringing life to human interactions within the car. The intensity, colour and movement of the light are bespoke for each material. Instead of replacing authentic materials with displays, the digital world enhances the natural beauty of materials to deliver information in a more emotional and compelling way creating a deeper connection to the journey.

The crystal centrepiece is the brain of the car, creating a means of visual feedback and emotional connection and enabling the car to communicate its own intelligence. Through sophisticated AI, the car learns preferences and behaviours of individuals, curating extraordinary experiences to enhance the journey, whether this be through luxury services or live educational content. The crystal centrepiece in the rear of the car forms the focal point for the ‘journey-scape’ allowing individuals to shape their Grand Tour in an emotional way. You can ‘Capture’ the greatest moments of your Grand Tour in your hand, all of which are saved by the AI in a journey library to be Re-Lived and shared. You can ‘Re-live’ these moments through the car which becomes the ultimate emotional and experiential diary which can be handed over to the next generation. Experiences evolve and update to maintain relevance and create timeless emotional bonds.
