Blade Runner Whiskey Glass

Dec 13, 2013

Released in 1982, Blade Runner is a sci-fi classic. That said, Ridley Scott got a few things wrong with his vision for Los Angeles, 2019. Quite frankly, the lack of flying cars and sexy robots in today’s society is enough to drive one to drink. Might as well do it in a whiskey glass straight out Rick Deckard’s hand. Well, almost straight out of his hand.

Just like the glass Harrison Ford used 30+ years ago, this one too is hand-blown crystal, blown by the expert hands at Arnolfo di Cambio, a world-famous boutique founded in the heart of Tuscany 50 years ago. The distinctive square design with diagonal cuts at the angles serves as a perfect piece of symbolism for the film’s brooding and dark take on the future. A future, mind you, even darker than first imagined, because of the lack of flying cars. [Purchase]
