Edible Sugar Glasses: Drink up, Then Eat up
February 26th, 2013
Candy glass isn’t something new, but these ones made out of sugar are supposed to complement the drinks that you are consuming, and are certainly more artful than the ones I’ve seen before.
These edible sugar glasses were created by Mexican designer Fernando Laposse. They were roto-molded, and inspired by Murano glass. Just like candy glass props, you can break away part of it while you drink. When you swirl your drink around the glass, sugar starts to infuse into it, which is good for certain cocktails and mixes. They’re definitely something I could see being used in bars and clubs.
The design was refined from an initial lollipop model to a final model that was completely made up of sugar. They are part of The Food Project: The Taste of Shape exhibition at Italy’s MaRT, which runs through June 2, 2013.
