Inside Out

I saw these inverted candle sticks on Moco Loco and love them. Designed by Alberto Mantilla and Anthony Baxter for Mint, the Abra Candelabra is made from hand-blown glass. It seems like this "inside-out" idea is cropping up all over the place. I first remember seeing Emiko Oki's Pint Glass Series back in February of this year, and not so long ago Alissia MT's Inside Out Glasses. I like the trend, but I'm glad to see it moving beyond drink ware. Anyone who can point us toward other "inside-out" products, please feel free to leave a comment!


  1. Who had the original concept? The Pint glass series is clever, especially the ashtray!

  2. I'm not sure who came up with the idea first...I think Bodum came up with the technology, and these ladies took it to the next level...
