â€œMingleâ€ combines the iconic form of the martini glass and a user centric design approach. “Mingle” consists of a double-walled glass bowl that insulates a cool drink from warm fingers. The bowl can be set in the base when the drinker is not holding or drinking from it and serves as a coaster as well. Best of all, the two-piece construction allows the unit to be broken down and compactly stored. “Mingle” allows you to do exactly that - the next time youâ€™re at a party.
About a month ago I entered the Bombay Sapphire Martini Glass Competition. They were supposed to notify the winners a week after the competition ended so when I didnâ€™t hear back from them I was really disappointed . I know itâ€™s really difficult to win any design competition with all the great talent out there, but I felt my design really made sense. The solution was a perfect balance of form, function and synergy.
I was jumping out of my skin when I notified that I placed as a top ten finalist and that the winners would be decided by public vote. Maybe this will be the break that Iâ€™ve been working toward.
Vote Soon There’s Still Time:
Please visit http://www.designerglasscompetition.com/ and vote for â€œMingleâ€. I am also interested in your design feedback.
Thanks, wish me luck.
