Not to worry, this revolution in glassware will not topple over. Its innovative design includes details to make it virtually spill-proof, which makes it ideal even for picnics. When pouring contents, the glass is held vertically, and the top of the K logo indicates the absolute maximum volume to prevent the contents from spilling when set down.
Each flat plane enables the vessel to stay in position, but the edges are close enough that, when placed on a flat surface and given a gentle tap, the 24 Carat sides will spin on the central cone. This feature is ideal, for instance, for stirring and releasing the flavor and aroma of whiskey, as the motion simulates the rotational movement you would make with your hand while holding an ordinary whiskey glass.
Fluid and elegant, bold and functional, the pure geometry of the Carat collection has a style that transcends the trends of the moment. It blends aesthetics and practicality into a distinctive creation that sparks conversation and adds something extra to every occasion. Carat’s glittering facets enhance the colour and movement of the liquid’s reflections and accentuate the contents in a lively and sensuous way – whether it is wine, water or flowers.
In addition to clear, Carat is also available in several hues and finishes.
