Nature has always been one of the most important sources of inspiration for designers. The idea came to designers' minds by looking into the space and the image of Milk Way Galaxy.The most important aspect in this design was to create a unique form. Many designs that are in the market focus on making the most clear ice but in this presented design, the designers intentionally focused on the forms which are made by the minerals while the water turns into ice, to be more clear the designers transformed a natural defect into a beautiful effect. This design creates a spiral spherical form.
The design of this service was inspired by two schools of the early 20th century the German Bauhaus and the Russian avant-garde. Strict straight geometry and well-thought-out functionality fully corresponds to the spirit of the manifestos of those times: "what is convenient is beautiful". At the same time following modern trends the designer combines two contrasting materials in this project. Classic white milk porcelain is complemented by bright lids made of cork. Functionality of the design is supported by simple, convenient handles and the overall usability of the form.
The 30s Wine Glass by Saara Korppi is particularly designed for white wine, but it can also be used for other beverages, too. It has been made in a hot shop using old glass blowing techniques, which means every piece is unique. Saara’s goal is to design high quality glass that looks interesting from all angles and, when filled with liquid, allows light to reflect from different angles adding extra enjoyment to drinking. Her inspiration for the 30s Wine Glass comes from her previous 30s Cognac Glass design, both products sharing the shape of the cup and playfulness.

This design bridges a gap between fine dining and casual situations. It is inspired by natural forms in particular by Urchins and Corals. The polymer body shells allow strong colours to be employed and resist the corrosive effects of the contents. The size is practical for domestic use whilst being ergonomically functional to hold and the assembly allows for easy batch production. It brings colour and a talking point to dinner parties where it becomes a 'table sculpture' as well as functional object. The materials and appearance make it suitable for an informal gathering of friends.
