Quirky Science Inspired Glassware by Geoff and Kristen Zephyrus
Portland-based couple Kristen and Geoff Zephyrus create quirky science inspired glassware as a full-time job. A trained graphic designer and glass expert from MassArt, Geoff is the artist, while Kristen is the brains, behind the quirky and intelligent collaboration. Their motto is to create “smart gifts for smart people” with a whimsical sensibility.
Scientifically accurate, the glassware pays homage to calculus and chemistry equations. Dabbing into puns, each piece contains the chemistry equation of its designated liquid, i.e., the mug is scripted with the chemical formula of caffeine; whereas the tall glass is etched with “H2O”, the most famous chemical compound.
In addition to the cleverly composed glassware, the duo celebrates some of the most brilliant minds who have contributed to science. Engraved in tall beer glasses are the portraits of Charles Darwin, Nikola Tesla, Marie Curie, Albert Einstein and Rosalind Franklin.
Overall each creation begs the companion of a lab partner to grab a cup of coffee with, have a glass of wine with or a chilled beer. You can find their entire collection in their Etsy shop.
