The cognac and liqueur glass is an exclusive glass that breaks with the classical convention of design besides being a beautiful combination of function and pure pleasure. It is a glass constructed with consideration to its content's aroma, temperature and volume. The shape of the glass increases the intimate experience of drinking cognac or liqueur by accentuating the deep colour and movement of the liquid. Place the cognac or liqueur glass on your table, and enjoy how it gently turns, exposing the fine aroma of your favourite liqueur.
Rikke Hagen has designed an exclusive series of unconventional glasses. Besides being a beautiful combination of function and pure pleasure, the glasses are constructed with consideration to its content’s aroma, temperature and volume.
Rikke Hagen explains: "I wanted to design a cognac glass. The perfect gift to the man, who has everything. The inspiration comes from my own perception of when you drink a cognac; when you have the time in calm surroundings. I wanted the glass to give the user a feeling of a gentleman’s study and at the same time, the sense of calmness you get when you e.g. fondle a stone. The stem kept irritating me. I took the consequence and cut it off. That s how my cognac glass was born. It seemed obvious to make a smaller version for liqueur. The liqueur glass is the perfect gift for women and I often use it myself when I have my girlfriends over for a cozy evening."
"My inspiration for the glass came from my passion for collecting stones on the beach. The act of playing with stones in one’s and in a serene, meditative movement can be summed up in a functional and aesthetic design".

Jan Anderson and Poul Madsen teamed up to create the Normann Copenhagen brand in 1999 with a vision to make a difference in the design industry. Three years later they launched the first product, the lamp Norm 69. Within five years more than 38 products followed, as well as collaborations with established design names and new talent from around the world.
In 2005, Jan and Poul moved from a small design store at Strandboulevarden to an old 1700m2 cinema at Osterbro in Copenhagen. They were determined to create a unique retail environment that would add something new and exciting to Copenhagen. Today the store has not only won several prizes as the coolest design store in Copenhagen, but also serves as a platform for great parties, fashion events, art exhibitions as well as small happenings. Normann Copenhagen loves to challenge the conventional design rules. This is why you will find traditional materials put into untraditional use such as a washing-up bowl in rubber, a vase made out of Silicon and last but not least a dog made out of plastic. Normann Copenhagen is a way of living - a mindset, a way to view the world in a new and different way.
