That's the Spirit!

The inspiration for this appropriately tipsy glassware was found in a small wine bar in Florence, Italy, Daniele "Danne" Semeraro's present home. After accidentally snapping the stem of a wineglass, the Swedish-born designer concluded that the glass's stem was superfluous, both from an aesthetic and a technical point of view. He set forth to design a modern glass that would behave like a traditional piece of stemware but wouldn't need to go to such heights to do so. With this set, Danne cleverly displays his true design heritage, by mixing modern, Scandinavian functionality with Italian style and elegance.

Each down to earth tumbler twirls ever so slightly to aerate cupped wine, brandy, or whisky in order to develop aromas and delicate bouquets. The glasses are designed ergonomically to fit snuggly in the well of the drinker's palm, allowing each person to warm beverages ever so slightly with his or her touch. Add the wood tray to provide an exquisite, sculptural resting spot for glasses between sips. Wood tray is made in Los Angeles, California. Glasses made in China.
