You've probably seen those Bombay Sapphire Gin advertisements that feature unique martini glasses. Check out the winner of their Bombay Sapphire Designer Glass Competition, Global Final 2006 which was announced as part of Milan Design Week. UK-based designers, Tomek Rygalik and Jorre van Ast created this glass called 'Inverted' and won themselves a $15,000 prize. In order to drink from the glass you pick it up by the long stem. Interesting but one too many martinis and I'd be certain to poke myself in the eye with this thing.
This stunning shaker is inspired by the curves of a helix. It is made of a special thermal retentive metal called Nambé which holds the cold 3 times longer than other metals. Just stow it in the freezer for about 30 minutes, add your favorite mixers, and out comes chilled drinks without the need for ice. The Nambé metal will never tarnish, crack, chip or peel. The shaker goes for about $145.
