The spongey object that seals your vintages is celebrated in the creation of the Vino Cork by Studio Macura. The marvelous material is often discarded readily so this odd accessory strives for a more lasting acceptance.
It takes a form much magnified from its expendable counterparts, at roughly the same height but significantly broader in circumference. The buoyant bark-derived doodad makes its presence known, balancing conspicuously atop the narrowing neck of a wine bottle, accentuating the importance of its function.
But the Vino Cork by Studio Macura does not perform conventionally. Instead of plugging the mouth of the flask, it act as a cap. A hole in the disc is wide enough to accommodate the rim of a bottle and the base is broad enough to embrace the bottom once opened.
