Kinetic Whiskey Glass

Timothy Bromm

The Kinetic Whiskey Glass accentuates the importance of sound and motion experienced during the act of drinking whiskey. A glass ball is housed within an enclosed ‘floating’ chamber. In the process of swirling the ball around the base, the whiskey can be synchronized, introducing elements of skill and play into the drinking experience.
