Designer: Silo Studio
The Speckled Cups interpret a traditional glass-working technique in a contemporary way. Colored bits of borosilicate glass are fused to the base of a clear cup, creating a distinctive pattern. Each piece is made by hand and one-of-a-kind.
Silo Studio is the design collaboration of Attua Aparicio Torinos and Oscar Lessing, who formed the partnership in 2009. By adopting a hands-on approach, which they refer to as ‘Handmade hi-tech’, they aim to discover possibilities that the production line does not see, developing the expressive potential in industrial materials. A mix of craft and technology.
