Outline

Koichi Ando from Ando Gallery asked Jasper Morrison, one of the premier product designers in the U.K. to "design simple glasses that we can use on a daily basis," and so, ANDO'S GLASS was born. Although it seems simple, ANDO'S GLASS, characterized by the slight inclination on the side of the glass, and the beautiful curve towards the bottom, in both short and tall variations, has a design that the longer you keep using, the more you like. This plain, yet delicate figure, created by artisans in an old town in Tokyo blowing into a mold piece by piece, stays with you quietly in your daily life and gives you delight every time you take a drink.
