Comrades is a series of drinking vessels for alcoholic beverages of which the handling, shape and material properties ask for skill as they intend a repositioning of alcohol as something valuable.

One needs to be fit for consuming alcohol and not just drain it down the throat in plastic cups. Despite the increasing abuse of alcohol by younger generations in their nights out, alcohol stays an agent incentive for our more playful side. These objects not only facilitate a kind of play or game, but they also offer control. A measure. The drunker you get the more these vessels will turn out to be logically illogic, surprisingly physical or alarmingly delicate.
