Classic martini glass gets contemporary wooden makeover

Colorado-based furniture designer David Rasmussen recently turned his attention to making these really cool martini glasses that sport black walnut wood cups instead of the usual glass ones. It’s not just pretty but functional: using wood properly insulates the drink by keeping it cool for a longer time compared to glass. The stem gets a funky treatment too: take your pick from red, dark blue, lime green or white.
