L’Ivresse des Bois by Marcel Wanders for Baccarat

Marcel Wanders, a self-professed hedonist of great wines, focuses his talent and humor on wine glasses and carafes which often have little character. Working with an oenologist, he added a Burgundy, Bordeaux and Champagne glass to the traditional blank, featuring elegantly turned stems engraved with his favorite seal. The famous clown’s nose that pops up in his collections has become a motif for the stem and the stopper, produced in Baccarat red or clear crystal. Two magnificently elegant carafes–including one decanter–complete this sophisticated line geared to all design and wine connoisseurs.

Corona Globes by Nendo

Watanabe Kyogu makes high-spec, hand-applied globes at their educational products firm in Soka, Saitama Prefecture outside of Tokyo. Nendo wanted to take full advantage of Watanabe Kyogu’s high level of craftsmanship. They were also interested in creating a new kind of globe that would be more emotional, rather than simply presenting information. By reducing the amount of information, and rendering the oceans in white and land masses in black, the corona globe highlights the reliefs of islands and coastlines.
