Glasses designed for people who cannot drink much
Alcohol Less is a pair of glasses which aim to protect people from excessive drinking and advocate food saving. It comprises the Mountain Glass and the Ocean Glass, with the curve of “peaks” or “waves” at the bottoms of glasses, suggesting that users can choose glasses as per their own tolerance for alcohol. With 30 millilitres less than the Ocean Glass, the Mountain Glass enables people with alcohol intolerance to drink less. On top of that, each glass is printed with a pattern of boat or tree, matching the curve of peaks or waves perfectly. Alcohol Less not only increases the fun of drinking to some extent, but also avoids the awkwardness of alcohol intolerance.
