Recycled glassware

This stunning recycled glassware is designed by acclaimed Dutch designers Tord Boontje and Emma Woofenden.

Created from recycled bottles, the glasses and jug are made in Guatemala by a local artisan group who have developed skills in cutting and polishing glassware to create beautiful works of art.

The Guatemalan scheme is part of a Design with Conscience campaign that aims to use design to foster humanitarian and environmental causes around the world.

The glassware comes frosted, in various shades of green or in white, depending on the type of bottles used.

A great story and a great product too. We think these are a future design classic.

I'm going to try and get some of these from DEDECE to use in the space to serve water!
