Rikke Hagen has designed an exclusive series of unconventional glasses. Besides being a beautiful combination of function and pure pleasure, the glasses are constructed with consideration to its content’s aroma, temperature and volume.
The shape of the glasses increases the intimate experience of drinking by accentuating the color and movement of the drink.
Rikke Hagen explains: "I wanted to design a cognac glass. The perfect gift to the man, who has everything. The inspiration comes from my own perception of when you drink a cognac; when you have the time in calm surroundings. I wanted the glass to give the user a feeling of a gentleman’s study and at the same time, the sense of calmness you get when you e.g. fondle a stone. The stem kept irritating me. I took the consequence and cut it off. That’s how my Cognac Glass was born. It seemed obvious to make a smaller version for liqueur. The Liqueur Glass is the perfect gift for women and I often use it myself when I have my girlfriends over for a cozy evening."
"Just like the Cognac Glass and the Liqueur Glass I have designed, my inspiration for the Whiskey Glass came from my passion for collecting stones on the beach. The act of playing with stones in one’s hand in a serene, meditative movement can be summed up in a functional and aesthetic design. The curve at the bottom provides a natural grasp for the glass, and the little bubble elegantly elevates the ice cubes like small ice blocks."
Rikke Hagen’s glass series complements any bar cabinet with glasses for Cognac, Liqueur and Whiskey.
