Innovative Design: JOSEPHINE Decanter ‘Brilliant’
Embodying the allure of a meticulously cut diamond, the JOSEPHINE Decanter stands as a testament to innovative design characterized by minimalism and exquisite craftsmanship. Hand crafted from lead-free crystal, its central cone creates a spiral-shaped swirl upon pouring, rapidly infusing the wine with oxygen. Retaining the signature elegance of the JOSEPHINE collection, this decanter presents wine beautifully and reveals hidden flavors. The depth of the cone offers unmatched control and stability during pouring, allowing for graceful single-handed maneuvering.
As the winner of the German Design Award 2024, Josephinenhütte has proven that it can expand the boundaries of traditional glass art, and set new standards in the design world. It highlights the company's dedication to preserving handcrafted traditions, emphasizing the importance of keeping heritage alive while venturing down new paths.
