As a part of the Tallinn Design Festival the brand MSK Glass introduces an exhibition in OKAPI Gallery wholly dedicated to drinking glasses.
Drinking glasses are our companions in moments when we need to celebrate, rejoice and greet. Make a toast and bottoms up!
MSK Glass is a collaboration between three glass designers - Aleksandra Ehrensvärd, Andra Jõgis, and Kristiina Oppi.
The designers started their collaboration in 2014 at the Department of Glass Art of the Estonian Academy of Arts, where the first pieces
were made especially for the Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair. The first piece was a set of drinking glasses and a pitcher called
‘We Match’ (‘Me Sobime Kokku’ in Estonian), from which the brand name MSK Glass was derived. MSK Glass uses a simple
Scandinavian-like design language guarantees the works are durable in time since they are not influenced by passing trends.
The glassware is suitable for both everyday use and special occasions. Through the variety of colors, a little bit of joy and sparkle
is added to the Nordic interior. All products are handmade, mouth-blown glassware.
At the OKAPI Gallery, the drinking glass designs by MSK Glass have been wholly displayed: the first water glasses from the
“We fit together” series, “Dendro” whiskey glasses, low tumblers called “Mont” in two editions classic and golden,
and the latest Isaac wine glasses in the copper edition.
Isaac+copper is a wine glass, whose dignified and majestic form ensures its
permanence in time, but it also encapsulates a bit of humor and sparkle.
Glass and copper meet at the foot of the glass, the shape of which is inspired by
Newton apple. The interaction of the two materials creates iridescent, shiny reddish
tones, which emphasize the depth of color in red wines particularly.
