Habana - Decor number one
The Habana beaker set is the first product designed and manufactured by Australian plastics industry pioneer Brian Davis. Designed in the late 1950's when the plastics industry was only emerging in Victoria to compete against anodised Aluminium beaker sets. Brian's company is one of Australia's most successful with Decor one of Australia's most awarded and recognisable brands.
