These Goblets From Lihi Svirsky Are Baseless Yet Balanced

The concept behind baseless wine glasses is to provide a little extra oomph, which is exactly the aesthetic that Lihi Svirsky follows.

Wine glasses nearly always feature a wide, round base that keeps the glass balanced while filled. Usually, the only variation on this design is to do away with the stem altogether, which results in the stemless wine glass. However, Svirsky takes this one step further not only by removing the base, making it dramatically thicker and frosting the tip.

The design is crisp, clean and doesn't muddle around with any unnecessary components. All that's needed is there and the focus moves away from what the glass itself to what's missing; a clever concept to keep people thinking.
