Czech designer Martin Jakobsen has designed a globe-shaped cocktail glass that keeps liquids contained with a giant silicone stopper .

San Francisco design and style duo Superduperstudio also opted for a spill-evidence approach with their Saturn wine glasses, which have indented bases alternatively of classic stems.
By enclosing the drink completely, the Quido glass keeps flavours and scents contained as properly as preventing insects from acquiring in.
The designer – who set up his studio Jakobsen Layout in 2010 – has designed a variety of pieces of uncommon glassware above the many years, like the Luno container that attributes a ball of cork as a lid.
His Halm cocktail glass – a precursor to Quido – allows drinks to be served upside down by balancing on its stopper, whilst his Revolution wine glass lets the drinker hold the vessel both horizontally or vertically.
Following doing work with bartenders from about the planet, Jakobsen “further innovated” the unique upside-down Halm design to create the double-strawed Quido, which has its stopper positioned at the side of the glass rather of the bottom.

“As [designer] William Morris said: ‘Have nothing at all in your residence that you do not know to be valuable, or think to be beautiful’,” Jakobsen told Dezeen.
“I attempted to design a glass which is not only a end result of experience and more growth but even now fits into my assortment of glassware,” he extra.
