Let the Good Times Rock
The Rocking Glass features a curved bottom that allows it to rock without spilling and it gives you a different definition of tipsy.
The 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. Besides the fact that it’s rocking function is fun, the glass is also a sensuous experience. The rounded shape gives you the feeling of holding a sphere in your hand, and when you put it down, the rocking movements call forth a smile. The Rocking Glass is sturdy - made to last. You can put just about anything in it; coffee, tea, drinks, snacks, tea-lights or a little flower.”
Design: Britt Bonnesen
Britt’s inspiration comes from the fashion world. She had worked in the fashion industry for 10 years before she started her own home interior shop. Britt Bonnesen has been an important part of Normann Copenhagen since the very beginning.
“My grandfather, uncle and my father have all worked their entire lives as glass blowers for Holmegaard, so I have always had a passion for glass design. I love my little black notebook, which I carry around with me everywhere. There are many good ideas and thoughts in this book and maybe they will become a reality one day. I am fascinated by the many hip design hotels around the world. I have an eye for detail and the way details are well thought through, right from atmosphere, food, interior and the staff uniforms down to the hand soap in bathrooms. I also get my inspiration from the fashion industry since the two industries have many similarities”.
