Utzon’s inspiration for the Spring Drinking Glass came from a mountain spring, hence the name. According to the architect, the important part of the Spring Drinking Glass is the space inside. It is for this reason that the main focus when designing glass was on the way the space is used and how liquid flows out of it.
The Spring Drinking Glasses are dishwasher safe.
Jørn Utzon was born in 1918 and spent his lifetime designing large-scale buildings. The most famous one is the Sydney Opera house, which won him acclaim around the world. Utzon was educated at the Royal Art Academy in Copenhagen, and his works are recognized for their timelessness and universality.
Jørn Utzon designed the Spring Drinking Glasses at the same time as the Sydney Opera was being built. As a result, the sketches for the glasses were forgotten for a long time. ARCHITECTMADE set them into production for the first time ever since they were designed. Similarly, they are even more special because they are some of the few smaller products he designed in his lifetime.
