COLUMBUS, OH, MAY 19, 2018 — Oneida, a leader in the tabletop industry and foodservice market, continues to roll out innovation and on-trend design with its latest dinnerware and glassware offerings. With two new dinnerware designs, an entirely new crystal glassware collection as well as line extensions in banquetware, the Company continues to focus on helping its customers win with presentation at the table.
“Product innovation is one of our sweet spots,” said Lisa Tecklenburg, SVP of the Commercial Business Unit of The Oneida Group. “We understand how to leverage trends to deliver product innovation that answers both design and high-quality functionality needs.We’re introducing our new designs at NRA that will round out our highly sought-after Sant’Andrea® collection, including crystal glassware for the first time ever.”
Oneida’s most popular and beloved collection, Sant’Andrea®, delivers in form and function while making a luxury statement that visually complements food, and now drink, in the way the chef and bartender intends. Rolling out a more robust offering ensures Sant’Andrea® fits the needs of any restaurant concept or design, from high-end to farm-to-table to gastro-pub.
“We are extremely proud of our Sant’Andrea® offerings and are excited to provide our customers with a design that delivers the entire tabletop to better meet their needs,” continued Tecklenburg. “Our intention is to align ourselves with our customers to co-design their dining experience from function [what works in the back of the restaurant] to form [what visually stimulates their customers in the dining room].”
For the first time ever, Oneida introduces a Sant’Andrea® crystal glassware range. In five
unique and carefully crafted designs, the crystal fits many restaurant settings from high-end to
casual dining with classic, modern and relaxed elegance showcased in the craftsmanship. Each
design evokes profound flavor experience with a laser cut rim, oversized bowl, seamless stem
and flat base.
New Introductions Include:
Texture meets pattern in a modern expression of organic linear interplay. A wandering
intersection of pathways creates a halo of natural structure as well as a thoughtful visual frame for culinary expression. With balance and rhythm, Pensato’s character weaves a fabric of curvaceous gesture and form.
This bright white porcelain design mixes perfectly with other materials on the tabletop to
create a visual landscape that is pleasingly visual and versatile. With a complete range of shapes for casual or fine dining, this pattern is also designed to work with the Oneida plate cover system.
Francia’s smooth, glazed centerwell is framed with a matte rim sculpturally dappled with a
champagne texture. The pleasingly contrasting surfaces elevate the natural essence of culinary
expression, and naturally focus flavors with a multi-sensory aura.
Complete with banqueting items and a full range of shapes, this pattern is designed to work
with the Oneida plate cover system.
The innovative designs in our new Sant’Andrea Crystal range are made with superior, exacting
quality. Each shape will enhance your guest’s experience and help to create memories that will
keep them coming back. Our designers have created each distinctive shape with exceptional
insight and craftsmanship.
Sant’Andrea Crystal joins our established flatware and dinnerware ranges to offer a complete
luxury statement in design-driven culinary tableware. Crystal will launch with five elegant,
attention-grabbing designs along with carafes and decanters. From white to red to sparking and more, Sant’Andrea Amore, Sant’Andrea Furioso, Sant’Andrea Brio, Sant’Andrea Pensato and Sant’Andrea Adagio are the only wine glasses a bartender will ever need.

Three Oneida dinnerware patterns, growing in popularity are now banquet and buffet-ready.

stacking shapes and 11 inch plates that work with the Oneida 5-Crown plate cover system.
