Designer Duncan Shotton Creates A Miniature Swimming Pool Drinking Glass

British designer Duncan Shotton (previously) introduces his next everyday object: A miniature swimming pool drinking glass. A minimal design with a little touch of lovelyness, to give you the positive feeling that comes with summertime, all year round.

Duncan established his small Tokyo design studio in 2012, and re-located to Bristol UK in early 2018. Focusing on designing happiness into everyday things, Duncan uses themes such as play, wit and illusion to create a range of original products and limited edition items that converge simple ideas with serious product design.

A frosted area around the glass creates the pool “wall”, and a gold ladder appears to wrap over it. A blue circle is printed on the bottom, which then gently fades up into the frosted wall as a halftone gradient. As a final detail, a reversed-out depth gauge runs up the edge of the frosted wall.

Expertly made and decorated in Japan, each glass is decorated with six sets of decals before firing in a kiln, which bonds them to the soda-lime glass.

The boxes are constructed from premium E-flute cardboard, made locally in Bristol, UK. The design is simple, neat and easy to wrap, making a great gift! ^^
