The designer of the Egg Decanter understood that the creation of a product in borosilicate glass would open up great opportunities for artistic design.

Satisfying the criteria of your typical wine-aerating container, this exquisite vessel has a bulbous bottom and a smooth transparent surface that allows the drinker to examine the rich color of the liquid contents. Deviating from the familiar silhouette of such an item, this delicate Designbox piece takes the shape of a large bird or reptile's egg. Not based on purist geometries, this form has an organic beauty with great depth and softened complexity.

But beyond its rounded walls, the Egg Decanter serves up intrigue through its position as well. With vino inside, the vessel's low center of gravity lets the cork-stopped container tilt as if it is resting naturally within a nest.
