Libbey introduces The Gats.
This amazing glass was the winning concept of the second edition of the Glassology by Libbey design contest. In May 2018, Yochen Verbeeck, from Belgium enchanted the judges with his great story and beautiful creation.
The Gats was inspired by three different sources:
- The golden age of Art Deco – seen in the smooth, curved lines and polished surface;
- “The Great Gatsby”, F. Scott Fitzgerald’s landmark novel set in the glamourous Roaring Twenties in New York – captured in the elegant and stylish details: mysterious and understated, just like Gatsby, the novel’s hero;
- A vase that was always filled with fresh flowers in the house of Yochen’s
But, perhaps Yochen explains it best, “I brought my love for my family, art and history together in one design. I wanted to keep it simple and let the glass speak for itself.” Which was exactly what Yochen has achieved with The Gats, a sophisticated design that delivers a drinking experience to stay with you long after the last sip has disappeared.
