Kickstarter: Periodic Tableware

Periodic Tableware by Marshall Jamshidi

Periodic Tableware is a line of drinkware based upon the iconic look of laboratory glass.  If, like me, you’ve always had a fascination with beakers, but you haven’t felt completely confident in using the container that you just placed hydrochloric acid in as a drinking glass, then this Kickstarter project is for you. The full set will set you back US$260, but you can get a single glass for just US$25.  Feel like a mad scientist every time you pour yourself a drink!
"Just as a chemical reaction is two or more materials combined to form a novel substance, Periodic TableWare is a synthesis of two intentions; A creation produced when the Form of Laboratory glass is applied to the Function of drinkware, both for the table and the bar. But why?

Laboratory glass has an appeal that is both alien and recognizable. Its iconic look conveys the power of science, and in its clarity are curves that are clean and beautiful.

From this realization, Periodic TableWare was born. Using scientific glassware as both the material and inspiration, I have developed a line of drinkware that aims to be simultaneously entertaining and practical, elegant and amusing, nostalgic and unique."
