Created with a minimalistic, functional design, this glass is intended to suit any table setting with colours that are distinct yet unobtrusive. Designed in the 1960s by Yanagi Sōri, a leading product and industrial designer of Japan, the glass features 4 vertical lines of protruding dots, similar to water droplets in appearance. The pattern of these ‘droplets’ go through intriguing variations when viewed through the contents of the glass. Designed with both aesthetics and functionality in mind, the droplets also make the glass easier to grip. The engraved Y on the bottom is the initial of Yanagi Sōri, lending the drinking vessel its name, Y-glass.
