Overview


After 5pm | a collection o f wine goblets

 

 

After 5pm is a collection of glass goblets that focuses on a sensory approach through material transparency, sinuous elegance, and delicacy. This zoomorphic family of glasses ranges from functional to conceptual. The collection elicits emotions by challenging viewers' impressions and expectations of the material.

I decided to re-design wine goblets because I felt that the goblets on the market were a little prim. Their form is definite. They are symmetrical and rigid. They share similar dimensions of the bowl, the stem, and the foot. Users are also expected to hold the goblets in a certain way. The mainstream goblets reminded me of office workers who were required to dress formally. Wearing a suit and a pair of high heels all day can be exhausting. Like office workers, the goblets in the display window always stand straight and perfect. Looking at those goblets, I wondered if they also felt exhausted by acting professionally?

I named the collection After 5pm because our off-duty time starts at 5pm. From 9am to 5pm, office workers are on duty. They are expected to dress and to act in a certan way.

After 5pm when office workers are off-duty, sloppiness and weariness become the state of mind. I also wanted to give my goblets off-duty time and to let them relax and be more expressive. 

After 5pm is a zoomorphic family of wine goblets. The collection emphasizes a sensory approach through the use of glass. In order to be expressive, After 5pm is a range of coherent products from functional to conceptual. The primary goal of creating this collection is to elicit users’ emotions by challenging their impressions and expectations of the material. The secondary goal is to offer users various ways of holding and using a wine goblet. I hope that this collection achieves these two goals and creates fun for its users.

After 5pm | a collection of wine goblets

 

Standard office hours are from 9am to 5pm. In order to look professional, office workers are required to wear presentable attire. 

 

Mainstream goblets are similar to office workers. They all look rigid, formal, standardized, symmetrical and very professional.

 

Maybe wine goblets also need off-duty time to rest, to embrace more forms, to be more expressive, and not to be an ideal beauty.
