There’s certainly a time and place for razor-thin glassware. Nothing compares to the sensation of lifting a delicate coupe that’s as light as air. But sometimes a chunky, heavyweight number is what’s truly satisfying. Not only do these seemingly indestructible vessels make the cocktail ritual feel less fussy, they’re often more modern and sculptural than what’s found in your average bar cabinet. We’re basically thinking of these contemporary designs as not-your-grandma’s glassware.
Case in point: London-based brand LSA just released new additions to its Boris collection, which sports a serious chunk factor that has Domino editors oohing and ahhing. Expect mouth-blown vessels with thick cylindrical stems, spanning champagne, martini, and Nick & Nora sizes, as well as a liqueur glass set (comprised of essentially the most adorable shot glasses on the planet).
