This is the story of our Rocking Glass. It’s a glass that… you probably guessed it… rocks. Its curved bottom allows it to rock without spilling over.
Designer, Britt Bonnesen explains. “I conceived the idea of the Rocking Glass after watching an old movie about propeller aircraft. The old aircraft produced a lot of vibration therefore the glasses and tableware were designed not to spill. That’s how the idea of the Rocking Glass arose.”
It didn’t move for years!!!
The picture above has been shown in design magazines all over the world. It’s a nice picture, but it didn’t really tell the rocking story very well. Moving products and magazines don’t really go together!
We took more pictures of the glass, told the story of how it was used on MoMA for desserts, as a candle holder. We even used it to tell the story of a real Danish earthquake! But little did it help. Most people just saw a nice glass… it didn’t rock them.
So we made a 38 seconds super slow motion video and all of a sudden the idea behind the glass came to life. The video has been seen by more than 28.000 on Youtube [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lSPl4bwgPLk]
