float is a line of thermally resistant glassware designed with simple forms and clean lines to emphasize the expressive colours and charms of the tea, scotch, juice, etc., served within. The suspended bowl design of each piece creates a lens of liquid colour that projects a play of coloured light onto the table top.

These simple elegant forms belie sophisticated technical innovations and a high level of skill. Each piece of float glassware is crafted by master glassblowers in the Czech Republic from the finest water-clear German borosilicate glass, an extremely pure and chemically inert material that is resistant to thermal shock.

The suspended bowl design also performs the function of insulating the hand from the beverage. When used for a chilled drink, small beads of condensation will accumulate on the underbelly of the bowl, adding delicacy to the optical effect (rather than making rings on your table top). The float tea lantern, the signature piece of the collection, is made with a double glass wall, which encloses a vacuum, creating a thermally insulating space to maintain a hot or icy cold serving temperature. This allows the tea vessel to maintain the simple form of a cylinder, to be held and poured directly without the added appendage of a handle. With the tea light candle lit below the tea lantern, the ambient light, together with the colour, fragrance and steam of the tea, transcends the pragmatic to create a space and an engaging experience.

float glassware is packaged in efficient, fully recyclable / reusable hard-walled cardboard tube packaging. As each piece is hand crafted, minor variations do exist, but quality and functionality are maintained across all of our pieces.
