Ando's Glass was born when Koichi Ando of the Ando Gallery asked designer Jasper Morrison for "a simple glass, easy to use in everyday life."
Ando's glasses are blown individually by craftsmen at the Shotoku Glass Company. Established in 1922, Shotoku was initially a manufacturer of glass for light bulbs, going on in 1958 to become widely regarded for their Usuhari series of drinking glasses. Utilising incredibly precise hand-crafting techniques, they now produce a range of glassware notable for its thinness, strength and beauty.
