I love these new Wine Cork stoppers designed by Aurélien Barbry. The Wine Pourer (right) is pretty clever too, as its top ensures a proper seal. With more and more wineries choosing screw tops over cork stoppers, these will at least keep some of that traditional feel alive.
Available from Normann Copenhagen, €20,00.
My designs are based on objects in daily use. I redefine their use, and find new shapes and expressions to give new life to the object. Often, when you just drink one glass of wine a day, you lack a decorative, yet functional, stopper for the wine bottle. I think that it is interesting to use cork, which is an honest material, traditionally used as to seal bottles, for a series of Wine & Bar. For me, cork radiates a warmth and gives the series its natural look. Wine & Bar celebrates both the daily meal table and dinner parties… -Aurélien Barbry
