The vast majority of glasses are made to narrow towards the bottom. Doing completely the opposite of what's expected, this tapering glass has a broad base, gradually rising with straight edges to a shrinking rim. With the vessel full of beer, the frothy head starts to make the Fujiyama Glass look a lot like an erupting volcano.

Product Design Center created this pint glass to reference Japan's famous Mount Fuji. It doesn't quite come to a peak -- but then, you wouldn't be able to pour a glass or take a sip if it did. What's brilliant about this unique tumbler is that it's made from flawless transparent glass and holds a purist form, making it minimalist yet aesthetically intriguing.
