Rocking Glass by Normann Copenhagen
Design by Britt Bonnesen
The Rocking Glass is a sturdy and fun glass that you can use for almost everything. It has a specially designed curved bottom, which allows the glass to tilt back and forth without the content spilling. The rounded bottom also makes it comfortable to hold in the hand as you can both grip around the bottom or cradle it in your hand like a sphere. Rocking Glass is a great conversation piece and is a fresh take on a traditional tumbler.
The glass is designed to be robust enough to hold both cool and hot drinks. Use it for cocktails or as a decorative accessory. Or, do like they do at the MoMA café in New York; use it for that extra tasty dessert.
Britt Bonnesen explains: I conceived the idea of the Rocking Glass after watching an old movie about propeller aircraft. The old aircraft produced a lot of vibration therefore the glasses and tableware were designed not to spill. That's how the idea of the Rocking Glass arose. Besides the fact that its rocking function is fun, the glass is also a sensuous experience. The rounded shape gives you the feeling of holding a sphere in your hand, and when you put it down, the rocking movements call forth a smile. The Rocking Glass is sturdy - made to last. You can put just about anything in; coffee, tea, drinks, snacks, tea lights or a little flower.
