ASPECTS is Democratic Society’s first glassware collection, made in collaboration with Shotoku Glass Company. Established in 1922, these traditional craftsmen from Tokyo started off by manufacturing the glass portion of electric light bulbs. Based on the same technique and knowledge gained in their past experiences, the “Usuhari glass” series was developed. These are remarkably thin drinking glasses, each carefully hand crafted and individually mouth-blown.
Five design studios were commissioned to design the glasses, taking on an aspect of Singapore’s society with the famed thin glass as a canvas. HJGHER is proud to be one of five alongside our friends at Lanzavecchia + Wai, SUPERMAMA, The Little Dröm Store and The Press Room.

We were assigned to interpret the aspect of Sports and we thought it is apt to create something only fitting for the champion; For The Win.
Democratic Society is a design label that creates contemporary goods and giftware. The entire collection will be launched during the inaugural Singapore Design Week 2014 at SUPERMAMA, 8 Queen Street at the Singapore Art Museum. Grab yours today!
