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 www.artecnicainc.com for more details on their collaboration with Guatemalan craftsmen and other Design with Conscience products. In Australia you can get them at www.dedeceplus.com . The carafes and jugs are about $45, four glasses about $60 and a covered carafe with 4 glasses around the $100 mark.
