Sferico Glass Design Collection by Joe Colombo for Karakter
The Sferico glasses by Karakter belongs to a glassware collection designed by Joe Colombo in 1968. The Sferico line consists of glasses based on simple geometrical forms, all featuring a different combination of a spherical and a cylindrical shape.
The mouth-blown Sferico glasses are all designed so that they can be used for a variety of purposes. Sferico No. 3 can be used as a beer or wine glass, for example, but don’t be afraid to use your imagination – it also makes a striking addition to your brunch table setting as a smoothie or juice glass.SHOP NOW SHOP NOW SHOP NOW
