“Dining outside is one of my favourite aspects of summer, and now that we are able to grow most of our own produce in our organic garden, putting together sustainably-minded dinner tables has become extra special! It’s wonderful to reflect the same sort of thoughtful ethos with the pieces I set the table with, which is why I love Obakki so much.” – Cora Hilts

See Cora’s picks for her summer table below!





R+D.LAB Glassware


This glassware is crafted from Swiss borosilicate glass, known for its pure, durable quality. Borosilicate glass is some of the most resilient glass in the world; known for its incredible ability to withstand extreme temperature changes without cracking or scratching due to the low thermal expansion in the chemical structure of the glass.

The pieces are shaped using traditional mouth blowing technique; the innovation of design comes from modern shapes inspired by aesthetics of rationalist and modernist architecture whilst respecting its functionality. The result gives each piece a simple elegance.

These special pieces were crafted in a workshop run by third-generation glassblowers called R+D Lab in Italy; made entirely by artisan hands, each piece is unique and has been created with the greatest care and attention to detail. If handled with care, they will last a lifetime.


Cora’s Picks:

Luisa Calice 3-Piece Set

Clear Luisa Coppa – Set of 2





La Chicharra Ceramica Plates


La Chicharra Ceramica is also a favourite dinnerware of exclusive resorts such as The Tulum Treehouse, a private jungle retreat in Mexico owned by Design Hotels Portfolio. And a favourite at the trend-setting West Hollywood mezcaleria (mezcal bar), Madre!, where these stunning plates, bowls, and cups are described as taking the establishment’s Mexican food “to the next level”.


Cora’s Picks:

8″ Plato Liso – Set of 4

11″ Plato Liso – Set of 4





The Lost Explorer Mezcal


In the mezcaleria theme, Cora served Lost Explorer Mezcal as her cocktails of the evening. Created by David Mayer de Rothschild, Lost Explorer Mezcal is one of the most sustainable liquor brands out there. They have the long-term mission of becoming the most sustainable mezcal brand in the world – and they are so transparent about all the incredible things they are doing so far. 

While setting high standards for sustainability within the industry, they are creating incredible mezcals. So far, they have three award-winning artisanal mezcals with different notes depending on your preference. They also make incredible gifts because you can even personalize your bottle by engraving your loved one’s name! Their Tobala Mezcal is our head of partnership’s favourite as it is earthy with hints of tobacco, cocoa, vanilla and leather and it offers a unique balance between wood aromas and umami flavors.
