The Grommet, an online shopping site and product launch platform for innovative and undiscovered products, is working with Swedish Designer to feature Sempli, crystal glassware. The Grommet is proud to feature this innovative product as it's a new take on an traditional piece.

Sempli’s Cupa barware appears about to tip over, but it won’t. The stemless glasses and decanter have a cone-shaped bottom that rotates on its own axis. The pieces are carefully designed to function as revolving objects, so while the containers are spinning, the beverages get decanted.

Daniele Semeraro, who was born in Vasteras, Sweden, came up with the idea for the Cupa series at a wine bar in Firenze, Italy, and the novel design reflects his dual Swedish/Italian identity. The Swedish influence can be seen in his functional approach to design: The swirling rotation of the glass helps oxygenate your wine and spread the aroma of whiskey or brandy. Staying true to his Italian heritage, Daniele’s design celebrates the craft of glass blowing and adds some aesthetic playfulness by creating a tabletop display. (Daniele's felt coasters help to keep his glasses still.)

About The Grommet

The Grommet seeks out these unique products, carefully tests them, and produces a video review of each one telling the story behind its creation. The Grommet is rooted in the philosophy of Citizen Commerce whereby regular people form the commerce experience by suggesting products that reflect their values and interests.
