OmniMount® Designer Wins U.S. BOMBAY SAPPHIRE Designer Glass Competition

Roberta Albuquerque's "Callatini" Martini Glass Design Recently Took the OmniMount Product Manager/Designer to Milan, Italy to Compete in the Global Finals

Phoenix, Ariz., June 1, 2006 - The next time you are enjoying a BOMBAY SAPPHIRE® gin martini cocktail at your favorite haunt, look closely at your martini glass and you might begin to wonder why images of OmniMount cantilevers or wall furniture mysteriously enter your mind.


Why?

OmniMount Systems (www.OmniMount.com) Product Manager/ Designer Roberta Albuquerque was recently named the U.S. winner of the 2006 BOMBAY SAPPHIRE Designer Glass Competition with her design "Callatini". Roberta flew to Milan, Italy in April to compete for the International competition where "Callatini" went up against winners from other countries.

"My inspiration for the glass was the Calla Lily, a very simple, yet elegant flower with a striking architecture," said Albuquerque, a native of Brazil who also speaks five languages (English, Portuguese, Spanish, Italian, and French). "The glass is very unique and fluid in reference to the smoothness of a BOMBAY SAPPHIRE gin martini cocktail."

Albuquerque submitted her design early last December, and after several rounds of judging, was flown to Boston in March for the finals and ultimately named the U.S. winner. Amongst other prizes, Roberta received a trip to Milan to compete in the Global Finals, which takes place annually during the Salone del Mobile, the world's largest design fair.

At OmniMount, Albuquerque's duties include researching and developing concepts according to client's needs using her knowledge of current trends and manufacturing, as well as utilizing computer aided industrial design (CAID) software to create drawings, models, computer simulations, and prototypes. She works closely with OmniMount's sales and marketing departments, as well as within the design department, to help keep OmniMount at the forefront of the industry by continuing the trend of creating new and innovative products that have established OmniMount as the industry leader for nearly 30 years.
