Strike a balance with the Curoe Carafes by Liviana Osti. The two component decanter is meant to inspire the adoption of moderation. Comprised of two detachable carafes it was created with the intention that one section would hold water while the other held a reasonable amount of red wine. This ingeniously quirky piece of glassware attempts to raise the issue of heart health without being over-bearing.
Designed with the natural appearance of a healthy human heart in mind, the two pieces separate according to the natural division of ventricles. Liviana Osti hopes to cut through the noise and address cardiovascular health where the majority of good and bad choices are made: the dinner table. Hoping to reach the heart of the matter and pump up some heartfelt interest in the subject, Osti has created the Curoe Carafes to be so beautiful that even self-deluding lushes will be seduced by its curvaceous lines and meticulously craftsmanship.
Hoping to reach people at the source, Liviana Osti takes the time to create a proverbial heart-to-heart with vino aficionados. Whether the message of the Curoe Carafes will sink in remains to be seen.
