Glassy French Press

If you’ve seen one french press, you’ve seen them all right? The art of the french press is in its simplicity. No complicated machinery or doo-dads. This french press is different because it’s molded out of a single piece of glass framed in metal. It’s not just a design aesthetic but for durability too. A single solid piece of glass is far more shatter resistant.

What’s even better is the entire thing is dish washer safe and BPA free. LOVES IT. If you’re interested, check out the three links below.

    is that a 3d model? how did you get the glass distortion effect?

      He probably filled it with distilled water. Any minor bubbling would have been re-touched out.

        …you don’t fill a 3d model with real water you know 😛

        And the distortion effect, also known as refraction, is a basic material utility, found in almost every 3d visualization program to date.

        Some nifty rendering programs today are designed to get the most realistic product design renders out and in these you just tell the program it’s “glass”
