Cups conventionally take on a range of predictable forms which usually incorporate relatively smooth interior surfaces for easy cleaning. Sukat Makkaralla Glasses diverge from the familiar bell and flare shapes of common drinking vessels through the eccentric undulating nature of the delectable colored glass.

The tactile quality of these wavelike cups and pitchers would be just about as compelling as they are visually. Mimicking the ripples of the very liquid contained within, they are a delight to observe with their translucent tints and the way that their swelling outer skins tease the fingertips that hold them.

The name of the Marimekko Set by Anu Penttinen translates from Finnish to "socks rolled down." The dishwasher safe Sukat Makkaralla Glasses are hence instilled with a playfulness alongside the immaculate class from their meticulous manufacturing.
