Nothing kills the buzz of a drink outdoors more than the chunky rim of a plastic cup at your lips. Refining the concept with a few Dieter Rams-worthy design principles, Govino's reusable wine glasses and champagne flutes, made from BPA-free, shatterproof polymer, keep al fresco sipping safe while upping the overall experience. Reflecting wine's color and aroma more like crystal, the streamlined design not only adds elegance lacking from standard party cups, but a thumb indentation helps prevent them from slipping out of hands easily.

Govino glasses, designed to withstand temperatures up to 160°,can be washed and used again instead of tossed out like most alternatives. Each food-safe four-pack sells online for $13.
