Connect Glass / Kitchen

Connect Glass
Connect Glass

77% of respondents of an online survey I conducted said that they want to lessen their use of phones when they eat or socialize with others. With this information, I looked into situations where people socialize and determined that drinking wine is a great part of any occasion. Wine makes a good meal better and is best enjoyed with conversation. Sadly, most people are too preoccupied with their phones.

The Connect Glass is a wine glass that can only stand using a strapped phone as its base. It is designed for establishments (restaurants and bars) that want to give their customers a better experience by enhancing social interaction.
