Loris&Livia: TipsyPosted: January 30, 2012
Whimsical, and in most cases functional, the Tipsy glasses from Loris&Livia are a unique & playful commentary on the effects of alcohol as well as an experimentation on material manipulation. Perhaps he-who-loves-liquor-a-bit-too-much can curb his enthusiasm with a slightly less voluminous option? Just a sip for you, monsieur!
From Loris&Livia: DesignMarketo invited us to make an intervention on the traditional Duralex Picardie Glass. They look a bit out of shape, a bit wrong, just like the world around you when you get tipsy! Reminders of the merry atmosphere in over-crowded bars, standing like happy cocktail lovers defying the laws of gravity, our glasses were put in a kiln at a very high temperature until reaching their melting point. The process resulted in a slow deformation of the pieces while preserving their original identity. You can buy Tipsy from LORIS&LIVIA’s Boutique. Photographs by James Champion © 2011
