Slowly Rising glassware collection by Tongqi Lu for Tickle Quo

Dezeen Showroom: Chinese homeware brand Tickle Quo has launched the Slowly Rising collection of glassware, which features textured glass surfaces informed by the Japanese philosophy of wabi-sabi.

Designed by the brand founder Tongqi Lu, the Slowly Rising collection includes tumblers, wine glasses, a coffee cup with a metal saucer and a vase.

Informed by textures found in nature and wabi-sabi – an ancient Japanese philosophy that embraces the beauty of imperfections – the collection features a dappled surface made from blown glass.

"When holding the glass, you can feel the bumpy surface, just as if you were feeling soil falling through your fingers," said Tickle Quo.
