Perpetually Full Wine Glasses

The Glass Tank Wine Dispenser by Kouichi Okamoto

— May 17, 2009 — Art & Design
The Glass Tank drinking vessel by Kouichi Okamoto eliminates the need to get up to refill your glass. The inverted teardrop-shaped reservoir holds an evening’s worth of vino and has a goblet built into the side. Combined air pressure and water pressure allow just enough wine to flow into the glass, resulting in a continuous refill.

Imagine a dinner party table set with an individual Glass Tank at each place setting! You have to admit the $329 ultra-stylish carafe is much more elegant than potential alternatives like the box sitting at the edge of the table or worse, a pitcher and a straw!

2. Effortless Entertaining - The Glass Tank's elegant and stylish design offers a disruptive innovation opportunity for dinner party accessories, providing a unique and sophisticated way to serve wine.
3. Automated Beverage Dispensing - The Glass Tank's use of combined air and water pressure to dispense wine opens up a disruptive innovation opportunity for automated beverage dispensing systems, streamlining the process of serving drinks.
