British designer Tim Parson has created a glass version of his well known Half Pint Mug design. The Half Pint Mug created as a Royal College of Art project, has two walls so the outside never gets very hot. The profile of the mugs and glasses is borrowed from the standard British pint glass, known as nonic.
The Half Pint design glasses and mugs are available through Innermost and online from Firebox for about GBP 10 (mug) and GBP 14 (glass) the twin-pack.
