Emiko Oki

New tableware with a twist from Japanese designer Emiko Oki. Oki's 'Trophy' set, above, is like having a transformer for your dishes - within the trophy are 7 different pieces ranging from a teapot to an egg cup. This is one of the more clever ideas I have seen in a while. I also like her 'Pint Glass Series', although the wine goblet is the only one of the group that really catches my eye. Not sure an ashtray in a glass is ever an appealing choice...but I'd take a set of those goblets any day. (Via Sub-Studio via Core 77)

This is so very pretty! I love the outline of the glass with red liquid. Definitely a brilliant idea.
