The Companion Martini builds upon the emotional bond between two people when sharing a well-crafted martini. Whether in a large social setting or an intimate gathering of two, this glass requires people to get close and interact. The two stands rely on each other in much the same way that friends do.
Inspiration for this piece comes from an interest in communication and the role that design can play in the way people interact with the world around them. By designing a glass that requires the use of another compatible glass, the Companion Martini forces interaction between two users. It creates its own experience and as a result, much more than a drink is shared. It opens opportunities for learning, life stories, business deals, relationships…the list goes on.
