Marquina 1961

Rafael Marquina

Rafael Marquina designed this non-drip oil and vinegar bottle in 1961; one of the most emblematic and widely renowned products of international design and an iconic product that has been copied the world over.
This bottle cleverly resolves the problem of drips, an ingenious solution never before solved by other cruet designs. A transparent product, stable and clear that embodies the very essence of the best design.

Rafael Marquina effectively reinterprets an everyday domestic object that is deeply rooted in our culture and tradition.
Its conical shape at both the bottom and top, one large cone to hold the liquid and another smaller cone to collect drips and act as a funnel to refill the container, also becomes the best way to hold the bottle and eliminates the need for a handle. The base of the recipient is broad, ensuring the bottle is stable and safe.

This oil/vinegar bottle produced by Mobles 114 is the only one authorised by its designer and is in accordance with the original design that won the ADI-FAD Delta Gold in 1961 and the Delta Gold 25 years in 1986.
