New kitchen collection creates an unexpected, magical lenticular effect.

Designed by Royal College of Art graduate Bilge Nur Saltik, OP-jects is a collection of glassware patterned with concave cuts on the bottom of the classically designed pieces. This particular design enables the collection to act like magnifying glasses and distorts the views through the glass creating optical illusions when placed on an accompanying tablecloth.

Saltik explains:

I am manipulating the information brain receives by distorting the image with layering different materials. Playing with colour and geometrical patterns enhance the optical illusions. These objects designed to change the pace of our ordinary life. They will surprise you by unexpected change and distortion on what you see during simply drinking water.
