Pretty much everything Tord Boonjte designs appeals to me and tranSglass® is no exception. I first saw these pieces in the Design Museum on London's South Bank and at the time they were very expensive. I recently saw them again in a UK magazine and things have obviously moved on as they are now widely available and very well priced for such a lovely handcrafted and individual product.

tranSglass® recycled glass is designed by Emma Woffenden & Tord Boontje and is manufactured by ArTecnica. See for more details on their collaboration with Guatemalan craftsmen and other Design with Conscience products. In Australia you can get them at . The carafes and jugs are about $45, four glasses about $60 and a covered carafe with 4 glasses around the $100 mark.
