Message in a Glass

We go on about "Less is the New More"- so many of our problems are the result of overconsumption, of building, driving or eating what we want, rather than what we need. That's why we like this glass from industrial designer Inna Alesina- a small hole in the side separates want from need.

"The user would have to be careful while filling the glass and cover the hole with his or her thumb while drinking. Thus one could put a stop to waste (in the global sense) with one's own hands. Want/need glass is a humorous souvenir that addresses a serious problem."
Available for US$24 (each piece hand finished, numbered and signed) from ::Alesina Design via ::Trendhunter
