Effe glasses for Ferrarelle at

Effe Glass | Ferrarelle
Ferrarelle presents Effe, the acrobatic glass, able to cling magnetically to metal objects and to stay hanging upside down, can be left out of the cupboard getting it free, comfortable to use and handy.
Round shaped, incidentally referring to the shape of the little bubbles in the water, the glass is made of blown glass and provided with a magnetic stainless element able to support the weight once hung to a metal surface.
Those who have no metal in the kitchen can use the proper shelf able to house 4 glasses and to stick it to the wall or under a wall cupboard. It is made of a flexible sheet that once bended must be stuck using the proper stickers, simple to place and to remove when you wish.
