Exclusive glass range expanded
- Normann Copenhagen presents Rikke Hagen’s Long Drink glass
Designer Rikke Hagen has done it again. She has designed an exclusive and functional glass combining elegance and pleasure in a simple Scandinavian design. The Long Drink glass has an elegant mode of expression. The entire experience lies in the way that the glass rests in the hand.
Rikke Hagen’s range of glasses for Normann Copenhagen compliments any bar cabinet with its glasses for cognac, liqueur, whisky and now also long drinks. Each glass has been blown by mouth. The beautiful, aesthetic design can be seen in the fine craftsmanship and is distinctly felt when using the glass.
Rikke Hagen says: ”The range has been expanded with the Long Drink glass for the pleasure of those who prefer less strong and fresher drinks. The design of the series is the same, in that the glasses have a precise and contemporary mode of expression where the experience lies in the detail.”
The little bubble in the glass helps to create an amusing drink by elegantly raises the ice cubes like small blocks of ice. One can also use the Long Drink glass for beer or water. The glass is solid to the feel and the weight of the bottom makes it ideal for both festive occasions and everyday use. With its elegant design, Long Drink is a decorative addition to both the dinner table and the bar.

A glass designed for pleasure
- Normann Copenhagen presents Rikke Hagen’s Whiskey glass
Rikke Hagen has once again designed an exclusive glass for Normann Copenhagen – one that combines elegance, pleasure and function in a simple, Nordic design. Whiskey conveys an elegant expression, and the entire experience revolves around how you hold the glass in your hand. Aroma, temperature and volume all come together and the wide opening completes the indulgence.
Rikke Hagen explains:”Just like the Cognac glass I have designed, my inspiration for the Whiskey glass stems from my passion for collecting stones on the beach. The act of playing with stones in one’s hand in a serene, meditative movement can be summed up in a functional and aesthetic design. The curve at the bottom provides a natural grasp for the glass, and the little bubble elegantly elevates the ice cubes like little ice blocks.”
Rikke Hagen’s glass series for Normann Copenhagen complements any bar cabinet with glasses for cognac, liqueur and whiskey.

Rikke Hagen has designed an exclusive cognac glass that breaks with the classical convention of design besides being a beautiful combination of function and pure pleasure. It is a glass constructed with consideration to its content’s aroma, temperature and volume. The shape of the glass increases the intimate experience of drinking cognac by accentuating the deep colour and movement of the liquid.
Rikke Hagen explains: I wanted to craft a cognac glass. The perfect gift to the man who has everything. The inspiration springs from my own perception of when you drink a cognac; that is when you have time and in calm surroundings. I wanted the glass to give the user a feeling of a gentleman’s study and at the same time, the sense of calmness you get when you e.g. fondle a stone. The stem kept irritating me. I took the consequence and cut it off. That’s how my Cognac glass was born.
Place the Cognac glass on your table, and enjoy how it gently turns, exposing the fine aroma of your favorite cognac.
From the shape of the Cognac glass Rikke Hagen has designed a smaller version for liqueur.
