A collaboration between Sophie Lou Jacobsen and GHIA, The Totem Glasses are inspired by the colorful totem poles of postmodern design. The solid base and proportions of these stemless cocktail glasses were designed with special consideration for longer drinks — spritzes, mixers, even sodas! — but still work beautifully with any classic cocktail.
Sophie Lou Jacobsen is a French-American designer currently based in New York City. She designs objects, furniture, and spaces. Her work stems from the idea that objects have an innate power to enhance their user's mood through form and function. She focuses on simple objects and rituals, to see how she can alter these in ways that are surprising, delightful, and elevate the user experience. She believes that the objects which we surround ourselves with can and should be imbued with a certain poetry, creating a relationship between humans and objects built on mutual respect.
