Nicolas Brouillac hails from France, a country that takes their wine-drinking seriously. And while we saw that Peugeot once helped coffee drinkers imbibe with their coffee mills, industrial designer Brouillac designs products for oenophiles produced by the modern-day Peugeot.
His Dahlia decanter, inspired by a children's top, help to aerate a freshly-opened bottle. Pour into the funnel-like opening, then let Dahlia roll in its prescribed circle, confident that the vessel's design precludes any spillage.
If the Dahlia's spinning makes you nervous, you can go with the Young & Old Wine Decanter, which sits more conventionally on a tabletop. The aeration happens as you pour, via the specially-designed funnel; and the polycarbonate drip ring ensures your tablecloth stays white.
For wines and champagnes that require chilling, Brouillac has designed both the Equinoxe bucket and the Duck decanter. Again using the trick of a broad, funnel-like spout, he provides an easy way to pour, and the Duck—which will sit perfectly flat on a tabletop—can be tipped back into a vertical attitude when it's nested within the Equinoxe.
