A new Nordic perspective

Rikke Hagen has designed an exclusive cognac glass that breaks with the classical convention of design besides being a beautiful combination of function and pure pleasure. It is a glass constructed with consideration to its content's aroma, temperature and volume. The shape of the glass increases the intimate experience of drinking cognac by accentuating the deep colour and movement of the liquid. Rikke Hagen explains: I wanted to craft a cognac glass. The perfect gift to the man, who has everything. The inspiration springs from my own perception of when you drink a cognac; that is when you have time and in calm surroundings. I wanted the glass to give the user a feeling of a gentleman's study and at the same time, the sense of calmness you get when you e.g. fondle a stone. The stem kept irritating me. I took the consequence and cut it off. That's how my Cognac glass was born. Place the Cognac glass on your table, and enjoy how it gently turns, exposing the fine aroma of your favorite cognac.
