The double wall Manhattan line from Bodum
I don't know how this release slipped under my radar, but Bodum is selling a new line of double wall insulated drink ware. The Manhattan line of hand-blown glasses uses a pocket of air between an inner and outer glass surface to insulate the hand from the beverage within. The minimization of surface area retards heat transference, and drinks stay colder (or hotter!) longer. An added bonus of the insulated design is that the outside of the glass doesn't change temperature, so it's more comfortable to hold when mingling.
The sleek Manhattan lineup includes martini, champagne, beer flutes, white wine, and shot glasses. Prices range from $10 to $25 per glass, and they're available direct from Bodum.
P.S. I read Dwell, and it's a great magazine
