The Stemless Staella Crystal Glass is Stabilized by a Cushion

It is generally accepted that drinking vessels need flat bases so that they can stand steady on level surfaces. Quite unexpectedly, the Staella Crystal Glass has a lovely bulbous bottom that would be responsible for its rolling over.

Stem-less wine glasses have certainly come into fashion, yet even these have usually been treated to subtle, smooth undersides to give them stability. In the case of this lovely Swedish creation, special coasters are necessary to provide this support.

Each square wheat pad pillow is plushy enough to allow the Staella Crystal Glass to sink down and stabilize. The arrangement even enables you to set your cup down on uneven surfaces like beds and couches. Johan Larsson and Martin Ferm's clever cushions can also be microwaved or refrigerated to maintain your beverage's temperature. Stats for Pillow-Propped Tumblers Trending: Older & Mild
