The Grass Ottoman is constructed of a fade resistant plastic set on a lightweight form that is solid

I love this set of four hand-blown martini glasses in beautiful colors by Sagaform, Sweden. Their other products are also great - their products are defined by unique detailing and high-quality materials and finishes. Available at stylishlife in the UK and Amazon in the US.
At first glance, these are simply beautiful colored glass bottles. But, what makes them unique is the process by which they are made. Excerpt from Vessel's site: "This series of five bottles, designed by Tapio Wirkkala in 1968 for
Venini, employs the "Incalmo" technique wherein two different types of
glass, worked separately, are fused together to obtain, within a single
object, separate areas differentiated by colours. This technique was
developed and perfected by the master glass-workers at Venini."
