Inspired by sheer geometry, this wine decanter boasts an effective aerating function. When pouring wine through it, it flows in a manner reminiscent of a waterfall to help aerate the wine: In the process, a micro-perforated filter initially removes any sediment from the wine, which then passes through the aerator and cascades down on the inside of the hand-blown glass decanter. Forming a contrast to the borosilicate glass, elements made of acacia wood and brass serve as decorative accents.
