New Menu Blade Wine Series Steals the Show

The new Menu Blade Wine Series designed by Design Wright that makes its debut this Fall received a resoundingly positive response at the New York Gift Show.

As we all know, wines release their true aromas when they come into
contact with oxygen, significantly improving the taste experience. Blade
adds 430% more oxygen to the wine. A result which no other decanting
pourer on the market can match.

The decanting pourer has inspired an entire series of Blade wine
accessories including the decanting pourer, a vacuum pump, waiter’s
corkscrew and twist corkscrew. The series is aerodynamic as well as
ergonomic and all tools are equipped with a rubber coated surface for
good and comfortable grip.

Please see below a video featuring the series.


NORM BATH. CLEAN SHAPES FOR YOUR BATHROOM

Design By:
Norm


Materials:
Steel, Plastic

The designers behind Bath are Jonas Bjerre-Poulsen and Kasper Rønn aka NORM. This style duo worships minimalism and functionality and endeavor to design products that meet real-life needs while at the same time pleasing all our senses. These ambitions are successfully combined in Norm’s new Bath series for Menu. All redundant elements have been stripped away, leaving only a clean look and straight-forward usefulness.

The stylish series comprises five items: a pedal bin, toilet brush, soap dispenser, toothbrush holder and a small box with a mirror. The items share the same shape and characteristic rounded base, giving them lightness without compromising on stability. All items stand firmly and securely in place.

Clean lines and simple functionality make the items easy to clean and use. For example, the brushed steel lid of the pedal bin opens easily, without hitting the wall behind it as most other pedal bin lids tend to do.

The toothbrush holder has a clever sieve in its base, allowing water to escape and leaving your toothbrush dry. The practical mirror in the container lid is hidden, yet always close to hand.

“Our work is firmly rooted in Scandinavian design tradition. When a recognizable form gets an original twist, the products seems more fun to use. This is the principle that we have incorporated in the bathroom, where cleanliness is of paramount importance,” explain Jonas Bjerre-Poulsen and Kasper Rønn.

 

BLADE WINE SERIES BRING OUT THE BEST IN YOUR WINE

Design By: 
Designwright

Materials:
Stainless Steel
Plastic

English design company Designwright has created an idea that is as ingenious as it is simple: the leaf shape creates a large surface area, maximizing the wine’s interaction with the oxygen in the air. The front is transparent, allowing you to witness the transformation of the wine’s flavor and bouquet. Four small holes on the front allow the wine to come into contact with even more air, improving the wine’s flavor based on the patented Venturi principle that Menu has made well known all over the world.

The result is incredible; and highly noticeable. As we all know, wines release their true aromas when they come into contact with oxygen, significantly improving the taste experience. Blade adds 430% more oxygen to the wine. A result which no other decanting pourer on the market can match.

The decanting pourer has inspired an entire series of Blade wine accessories including the decanting pourer, a vacuum pump, waiter’s corkscrew and twist corkscrew. The series is aerodynamic as well as ergonomic and all tools are equipped with a rubber coated surface for good and comfortable grip.

Each of the tools has its own, unique and practical characteristics: The vacuum pump prolongs the life of your wine by quickly and easily extracting air from the bottle. The waiter’s corkscrew sits comfortably in your hand and its practical shape makes easy work of uncorking bottles. The twist corkscrew has a clever magnetic closure mechanism that automatically brings the parts back in position after use.

The Blade wine series has been created by Designwright, one of the UK’s most acclaimed design teams, which has been working closely with Menu since 2011. Brothers Adrian and Jeremy Wright have a background in industrial design and focus on both the visual and the technical aspects of their craft. Designwright has won several Red Dot and Design Plus awards and earned the recognition of the British industry organization D&AD.
