Red wine stains are the perpetual fear of any homeowner, so it's just as well that Superduperstudio has come up with a new glass design that makes it practically impossible to spill your vino.
The "Saturn Glass" is a stemless glass that rests on an indent when placed on a flat surface, meaning the wine is held in a bowl-shaped vessel at the bottom of the receptacle. The design has been optimized to prevent messy spills and stains as much as possible.
Fabricated using traditional Italian glassblowing techniques, each vessel is made using molten glass shaped by hand before being blown into a mold. Each glass is then annealed overnight, cut, and hand polished.
Two sizes are available -- for red and white wine -- and the glasses are stackable.
Saturn Glasses are the brainchild of San Francisco-based start-up Superduperstudio. Launched following four years of research and development, the finished range is a remix of Italian and Scandinavian glass-making traditions.
Saturn Glasses can be purchased on backorder for $52 each on superduperstudio.net.
