Carafe Spoutnik, Vincent Poujardieu

1998

This decanter is a formal evocation of the famous Russian satellite that marked the beginning of the Space’s conquest. This glass prototype blown in the ancient Bégles’ glass factories is characterized by a curved body that allows both to contain the wine at the bottom and aerate it in the upper chamber.
