Out of Work

You may have seen something like this before for wine, Out of Work (OOW) is a product specifically for you social beer drinkers. The idea was born when Barcelona-based designers Giovanna de Ávila and Joan Sunyol joined forces to create this design. Used to the Spanish tradition of “tapeo” (that’s the Spanish word for going to snack bars), they found that it was very uncomfortable to be standing at the same time with the dish and the glass in each hand.

OOW holds the beer glass allowing you to carry both dish and glass with just one hand. It allows you to drift with your friends without thinking “where did I leave my glass?” Each beer glass is artisan mouth-blown and each plate is hand made in ceramics. So, next time you’re off to the bar, it’s BYOG&P, or “bring your own glass and plate.”
