A true design classic, the crushed cup by Dutch designer Rob Brandt in collaboration with design label, Goods. The glasses are inspired by the well-known plastic cups - but they are made of recycled glass which gives the glass a greenish look.
When the hospital where Rob Brandt worked switched from coffee mugs to plastic coffee cups, not everyone was happy. Although it saves money and washing time, the plastic cup is much more unstable, you burn your hands quicker and plastic has a negative environmental impact. Because Rob Brandt (1946) had by now become so accustomed to the sound of crushed plastic cups, the shape of this plastic cup inspired him to design a 'crushed' cup out of pottery.
