The Li-wai series puts a contemporary twist on traditional Chinese vases with the use of a double-walled construction, which adds dimensions of elegance and depth.

Appearing as a glass within a glass, the double-walled vases provide a unique, drinkwear experience. When filled, the liquid takes the form of the internal wall, creating the impression that the liquid is levitating above the glass. These vessels are available in a variety of different shapes, providing the perfect means of displaying anything from alcohol to ice cream.

The contemporary vases offer an interesting optical illusion that's both unique and visually stimulating. As an added benefit, the double-walled design is ideal for both hot and cold beverages, as the surrounding wall separates the user's hands from the beverage's temperature.
