Impossibly Adorable: Nendo’s Delightful ‘Winnie The Pooh’ Glassware

Japanese studio Nendo – whose designers continue to prove they will try their hand at anything – has launched a Winnie-the-Pooh glassware set.

The Pooh Glassware was designed for Walt Disney in Japan as part of a series of products themed around the children's story books.

To accompany the set of glass vessels, Nendo created a series of yellow silicon bases and tops that depict the activities and habitats of the cartoon bear.

Instead of focusing on the design of the glass vessels themselves, the studio has designed a series of creative yellow silicon lids, stoppers and coasters that depict the beloved bear’s many antics, and feature familiar icons from the stories.
The lids and stoppers feature 3D models of some of Pooh's most notorious stunts, including climbing trees, sticking his head in a jar of honey and hanging from a balloon.

These fit into a range of multi-purpose jars with different-sized openings.
Coasters for drinking glasses recreate settings from the illustrations: the door to the house, honey on a branch, the clock in Pooh's room and the bear stuck in a hole.

The Winnie-the-Pooh stories were written by AA Milne in the 1920s for his son Christopher Robin, before the characters were commercialised by American producer Stephen Slesinger in the 1930s.
Following Milne's death, the rights to the franchise were licensed to animation studio Walt Disney Productions in 1961.
