tina tsang: butterflies in my stomach glasses

tina tsang, director of undergrowth design, exhibited her new collection ‘butterflies in my stomach’ glasses at maison et objet 2011. the drinking vessels have a center piece containing a cluster of butterflies and words. the images are magnified when the contents are added, making it easier to see and understand the hidden messages inside. there are a variety of forms, each for a different beverage including wine and cognac, each containing a different note to be discovered. all the components are handmade by the british designer herself.
