HIK! Glasses from Reclaimed Beer Bottles

The Finnish family business Lasistudio reclaims glass bottles and jars without crushing them in order to create new objects. All the products are hand-made in an old barn in Finland. By taking advantage of the original shapes of the waste packages, only 1/4 of the energy needed to shape new objects from melted glass is used, says Jan Torstensson Oy, glassworks specialized in manufacturing items from recycled packaging glass.Our favourite are the HIK! drinking glasses, made from reclaimed brown beer bottles. These even made it into the Finnish Glass Museum. HIK! glasses are available as a 2 pack or 6 pack at Matteriashop and Lasistudio for 29€ and 75€. Also available in green. Via: Matteria ::Lasistudio
