Tokyo Style Glass
A timeless masterpiece.
The design is large, with about 300ml capacity. Although it is mostly used for whiskey and wine, it can also be used for water on a dinner table. It is thick and difficult to break.
Designed after the artist Makoto Komatsu observed the tree leaves in an autumn afternoon, he thought of crumple or wrinkles. He then proceeded to create a glass that felt uncomfortable to look at, but perfect to hold. It feels more natural to hold something asymmetrical.
Listening to feedback, he perfected it and since then it has become an iconic Japanese piece. It is showcased in many modern art galleries in Tokyo for over 40 years.
Because of its unusual shape, it looks good on a table with any drink. Water, wine, whiskey or even cocktails!

Frozen in time, uncertain at first, just right when you hold it.
First designed in 1980's, it made its way to the hearts of people who wanted to enjoy a glass of whiskey or wine, without taking themselves too seriously.
The glass gives you a sense of purpose. You drink from it and think of the way it was made, how unlikely that it reached your hand in this form. Glassmakers are usually very conservative, with very good reasons. But sometimes they relax, and make masterpieces.
