The idea behind design is to serve a useful item in the most tasteful way, literally. Meaning, to create the desire for more of the same. This beautiful Rocking Glass set, from Normann Copenhagen, does exactly that – you want more of it and you want more of what it does.

Perfect for cocktail parties, this is indeed a refreshing take on the so called “simple” item that is the drinking glass. Use it to serve drinks or simply as a decorative item, completed with a tea light or a little flower. Continue reading
