Menu W/W Carafe
Designed by Benjamin Hubert for Menu, the challenge was to create a product with a visually dramatic wine breathing process to develop Menu’s portfolio of wine accessories.
Over twenty prototypes of the W/W carafe were created during the design process to test the flow of wine and obtain the maximum aeration.
The final ‘raining’ process is both visually arresting and, as the wine is poured from the bottle into the carafe, increases the surface area of the wine by eight times a normal pour from the bottle. The wine can then be easily served from the carafe, making the process simple and efficient.
Created to be used with water too the rubber seal and stainless steel breathing device prevent ice and garnishes, such as fruits and herbs, from splashing into the glasses.
Material: Mouth-blown glass, stainless steel, silicone
