The Gats Rocks 290 ml
For The Gats, which won the 2nd edition of Libbey’s Glassology contest, designer Yochen Verbeeck drew on 3 sources of inspiration:
• the golden age of Art Deco – seen in the smooth, curved lines and polished surface;
• The Great Gatsby, Scott Fitzgerald’s landmark novel set in the glamourous Roaring Twenties of New York – captured in the elegant and stylish details: mysterious and understated, just like Gatsby, the novel’s hero;
• a vase that was always filled with fresh flowers in the house of Yochen’s grandmother.
But perhaps Yochen explains it best. “I brought my love for my family, art and history together in one design. I wanted to keep it simple and let the glass speak for itself.”
Which is exactly what Yochen has achieved with The Gats: a sophisticated design that delivers a drinking experience to stay with you long after the last sip has disappeared.
