Fresnel Stemware!

That’s right kids, Augustin Jean Fresnel would be proud!  Luca Nichetto Studios has produced a series of stemware and glasses made with the loving touch of Mr. Fresnel in mind!  From Luca Nichetto‘s website:

The Fresnel collection of stemware and glasses is distinguished by its three-dimensional decorative surface, which is derived from the Fresnel lens characterized by concentric annular sections designed for use in lighthouses as a means of radiating more light to assist with ships’ navigation. But this decoration is also functional, because it helps to increase the glassware’s resistance without compromising its slender shape or its proportions.

Awesome.  Check them out, I think they’re pretty cool!

Nice.
