The glasses were made in order to fill up the unused areas of ply sheets used by 00:/ to produce their WikiHouse design at the Hub Westminster. The furniture at the Hub Westminster was also designed and made by 00:/ using the same process.

The WikiHouse project is a web platform designed to be an open source construction set that allows anyone to design, download, and ‘print’ CNC-milled houses and components that can be assembled with minimal formal skill or training. Each pair can be designed, drawn, plotted and slotted together within an hour.
