Chinese New York is near and if you’re still scouring the web for that perfect vessel to gift your wine-loving friends, here’s an idea: Amo Eno’s funky carafes and wine glasses.
The Alavin Decanter by Italesse (above) does double duty as a handy aerating and cooling tool. Just fill the stand with crushed ice and prop the carafe on top. You can also place it directly on the table. The stand is available in red, violet, clear or black.
Akin to a chemist’s tools, Uplifting is a set of carafes crafted by Dean Brown for Secondome. While they don’t boast any special aerating or cooling functions, these carafes are fun pieces to have at your dining table. They also make for great conversation starters.
Inspired by traditional coffee pots and metal oil containers, Uccia Ina by Valentina Carretta is a wine carafe that can easily double up as an ornamental piece. It’s also a reflection of how retired tools can be reimagined in new and interesting ways.
For the seasoned party reveller no glassware collection will be complete without some groovy wine glasses. In comes The Weekend Glass by Italian-based Ichendorf. A contemporary spin on traditional crystal wine goblets these gems are available in two sizes – one for whites, the other for reds – and four colours – black, grey, orange and red.
