Chicago: international award for SAHM. Good Design Award™ for Dayton glass
The Good Design Award™ has honoured innovations in the field of product and consumer design in Chicago every year for over 60 years. It is one of the best-known and most traditional design competitions in the world. One of the 2013 winners is the Dayton glass by SAHM, one of the leading companies for innovative glass and décor design. With its simple shape but visually appealing design, the glass meets the highest standards in terms of beer enjoyment. The clear design and slight sweep of the glass make it pleasant to hold. The bulbous part of the glass is superb at allowing the fragrance and flavour of a beer to develop, while the tapered top enables optimal foam development. The Dayton glass from SAHM thus represents classically timeless design for the highest level of beer enjoyment.

SENSORIK goblet wins red dot design award
The newly developed tasting goblet has been awarded this year’s internationally coveted “red dot” design award in the Product Design category. The beer tasting glass was selected by the judging panel primarily because of its successful combination of design and functionality. The special shape of the glass enables a neutral comparison of the sensory characteristics of beer and was created by SAHM in cooperation with world champion sommelier Markus Del Monego.
Unique design and long-standing expertise in development The new tasting glass SENSORIK by SAHM, a leading company in the field of innovative glass and decor design, shows what can be achieved when these two aspects are combined. The goblet was developed especially for the sampling and evaluation of beers and is shaped in such a way as to enable easier appreciation of all the ingredients in a beer that are of sensory importance. In particular, the glass supports the development of the smell and taste parameters of a beer: for example, it tapers towards the top, enabling the aroma to develop while allowing the alcoholic components to recede into the background. The slightly flared top also helps to optimise the characteristics of the drink and ensures that the beer is distributed evenly across the tongue.
The knowledge acquired from tasting sessions is incorporated into TasteDesign®, a concept developed by SAHM, and used to create new glass shapes or optimise existing ones. These can be customised to suit the needs and defined taste profile of a brand. In accordance with its motto “form follows taste”, TasteDesign® aims to create the optimal glass shape for every drink.
The international red dot design award honours the best products and projects every year. In 2013, the 37-member judging panel considered 4662 entries from 54 countries.
