Champagne Extinguisher Packaging Will Cool the Fire Inside You

It's probably not a great idea to spray a raging fire with alcohol, but from a purely aesthetic standpoint, Champagne Extinguisher packaging serves up a deliciously eccentric image.

Diddo of the Netherlands designed this unconventional beverage bottle as a concept to contain Moët & Chandon Dom Pérignon. The usual elegant tinted flask was given a darker and foggier hue and a form much more common to chemical containers. An abrupt tapering of the glass and the absence of a graceful bottleneck quickly become a metal fixture which replicates that of a functional fire extinguisher. The entire piece has an exquisitely polished antique quality that makes the Champagne Extinguisher packaging look less like a designer's hoax and more like an authentic artifact.
