Beautiful glass coffee mugs with handle that reference the cycle of life and the passage of time.

Taipei-based design studio HMM Project creates minimalist products that tell a story. The new W glass coffee mugs with handle are no exception. Made in a collaboration between the studio and Taiwan’s largest recycled glass company, Spring Pool Glass, the glass is more than just a beautiful piece of glassware. Made of recycled glass, W gives new purpose to items that have reached the end of their life-cycle. Likewise, the elegant design draws inspiration from the cycle of life and from the passage of time. The W Glass features 12 facets that reference the hours of a clock.

Like other designs from HMM, the glass is expertly crafted by skilled artisans. In this case, local craftsmen who use recycle glass to shape each object to perfection. Using a glass-dyeing technique, they give the W glasses a beautiful amber color. As a result, the material creates a spectacle of light and color, enhanced further by the hue of the beverage. The glass handle is conveniently heat-proof and provides an easy way to hold a cup of hot coffee. Other practical features include the tapered bottom that allows the user to easily stack several glasses, and the circular, smooth interior that makes cleaning as easy as possible. The W glass coffee mugs with handle are now available through the HMM site at around $40 in a limited batch, but the studio plans to launch a second series soon.
