Drinkware

InsideOut Collection Liqueur Glass

I have the InsideOut champagne glasses, and I do have to say they are quite stunning. So, if you’re more of a ‘liqueur’ fan, you can now appreciate your favorite drink in the utmost style.

“In BY:AMT’s collection of barware, the well known and oftentimes iconic shapes of glasses are hidden behind a neutral and discreet outer shape, unassuming and simple. But once you pour the drink, the glass’ inner identity appears creating an unusual and highly fascinating effect.”

The glasses are all mouth blown, are 1.5″ wide and 4.75″ high (4 x 12 cm) and come in a set of 2.

Happy People Crystal Stemware – East to Asia

This will certainly raise eyebrows when the next toast comes around. And, since you are getting two glasses in one, the price is a bit more reasonable.

“A collection of reversible glasses consisting of diverse forms inspired by the mixture of people who come from various origins around the world. Designed by Karim Rashid for the award winning Turkish design house Gaia&Gino, each glass is named after a different country people. For example Karl is German – a beer glass, Mehmet is Turkish – raki/champagne glass and Pierre is French – red wine/white wine glass.”

Top Row: The “East and Asia Collection” includes Ivan, Mehmet, Ming Yu, and Yuri – each sold separately.

Sakurasaku

Even condensation can be aesthetically pleasing…

“It basically turns the notion of annoying condensation rings on ist head, and make them something to look forward to. Every time you lift your glass a beautiful Cherry Blossom, the Sakura Flower appears and subtely changes its shape…This is an amazing quality glass, the base feels thick and heavy, yet the walls are nice and thin giving off a crisp chime when toasted. The cherry blossom is etched perfectly into the base, so it creates a beautiful and perfect shape each time the glass is lifted…”

Set of two glasses per box
each: 4.3″ (11 cm) x 2.9″ (7,2 cm).

A non-traditional take on the usual wine glass shape…

“Varying slightly from the Esther Derkx norm, these wine glasses are new, not refurbished, but Derkx has still added her trademark humor in the form of designs screenprinted onto the glass. Each design varies slightly and we cannot guarantee which design you will receive.”

Super for a hit of espresso, a tealight or maybe a place for your jewelry or loose change. Available in unglazed white, glazed celery or glazed blue (matte glaze on the inside of all cups).”

Tag Cup

This cup bears resemblance to a cupcake, but I say that meaning it in a good way (for who doesn’t love cupcakes?). This cup is much more handy to have (than a cupcake) when handling hot or cold beverages. Would be a stand-out gift for someone that needs a new beverage-holder.

“Porcelain cup encased in easy to grip silicone sleeve. The silicone insulates the cup, keeping hot hot and cold cold, protects your hands from heat, and looks great too.”

Dimensions: 4.3″Ø x 3.5″H

Available in Mint, Plum or Carrot

Droplet Glass

If you or someone you’re fond of is a connoisseur of wine (or sake), this particular glass would be nice and special. It arrives in its own small wooden crate (which could be displayed on its own) that rounds out the whole ‘special’ package.

“The 8 oz glass is exceptionally thin and has a beautiful inverted droplet shape which, as you gently swirl the glass, helps to aerate the liquid and release the bouquet.”
