modus was designed in partnership between martin larsen and architect david garcia. the main driver for the project was the wish for a stable drinking glass that wouldn’t tip over easily when on the desk next to the computer. after an extensive design process the modus concept was conceived: a conical shaped glass with equal height and base diameter. besides being very stable, this design has the added functionality of being stackable with content. From this one glass design modus has grown to a full product family and now comprises drinking glasses in three sizes (150ml, 250ml and 400ml) a pitcher (1litre) as well as two sizes of bowls. modus was initially in production by the danish glassware manufacturer holmegaard.
