After being postponed in spring 2020, the Glassology By Libbey Design Contest is back for its third edition, challenging bar professionals from around the globe to create the world’s next iconic glass and have it produced by Libbey.
At Libbey, we know the power of glass to make a good drink a great one. We’re constantly searching for the next big thing in glassware – and we’re looking to the world’s best bar professionals to help us create it.
For the first time, bartenders and mixologists from the Americas will join those from Europe, Africa, the Middle East and Oceania to design glassware that complements cocktails and enhances the drinking experience.
The 2022 contest coincides with the United Nations International Year of Glass, which reflects on the essential role glass has played in technology, science, art and the economy – and its part in a sustainable future. We can think of no better way to mark the occasion than by bringing together engineers, designers and drinks professionals to celebrate the art of glassmaking.
The contest will begin in early 2022 as contestants submit their initial designs. During the summer, semifinalists will be announced and will travel to Libbey plants in Europe and the U.S. to finalize their concepts and learn about glassmaking alongside Libbey marketing and design experts.
