This Tapering Glass was Designed to Reference the Form of Mount Fuji

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.
