Glasses Spring

by Jørn Utzon

In Stock


Designed by one of Denmark’s most renowned architects, Jørn Utzon, the Spring mouth blown glasses are inspired by pure materials and fluid space. Utzon once said, “The greatest importance of the glass is the space within it.” Be it cognac, cocktails or water, Spring is more than a glass, it is a sculptural vessel for your beverage. Stackable and able to be tipped on its side as a cognac glass, Spring Glass is both art and function, allowing for storage in small places and elegant drinking. Designed in 1949, long before Utzon pioneered his organic shapes for his Opera house of Sydney, the glass was decades ahead of its time, making it a timeless classic today.

The Spring Glasses are part of Architectmade's collection. Architectmade is a Danish brand offering a glimpse into a few, rare design objects that some of Denmark’s leading architects created along their way to fame years ago. Celebrating timeless products that last, at the opposite of the "throw away" culture, Architectmade is renowned for its excellent craftsmanship. With three rounds of quality control, objects are made to stand the test of time and designed to be passed along to generations to come.

One of the greatest architects of the 20th century is certainly Jørn Utzon, Danish architect born in 1918 who created some of the most notable modern icons like the Sydney Opera House in Australia or the Kuwait National Assembly. Jørn Utzon also designed a few smaller objects, like the Spring Glassware Set now proposed by Architectmade. Utzon’s work begins as poetry, seeing architecture and objects as art, embedding thoughtful functionality, structural integrity, and sculptural harmony. This marriage of beauty and function earned him the prestigious Pritzker Prize in 2003. As a fellow Pritzker Laureate, Frank Gehry commented “Utzon made a building well ahead of its time, far ahead of available technology, and he persevered through extraordinary malicious publicity and negative criticism to build a building that changed the image of an entire country. It is the first time in our lifetime that an epic piece of architecture has gained such universal presence”.
