The Diamond Cruncher Skull Barware

Durable, Colorful, and Crystal-like with Eastman Tritan™ copolyester



Product designer Stéphane Chicha


Stéphane Chicha, owner and MD of Chic Conception, finds inspiration in metaphysical books and the lives of great thinkers. When a client asked for a fancy and fashionable shot glass, Chicha created “the diamond cruncher” a colorful glass in the form of a skull.


The shot glass was developed primarily for nightclubs, but also cafés, hotels, and restaurants. The material needed to be extremely durable, colorable, BPA-free, and have glass-like clarity.


Eastman Tritan™ copolyester fit all needs of the barware. “Tritan™ has a better reminiscence than glass, which is close to crystal,” said Chicha. “No other material was considered.”
