An everyday object, recreated in a metaphorical and dynamic key
Today I want to show you one of those products that really got my attention as soon as I discovered it, and since I’m soon going to be having an “inauguration” for my new home (follow my daily adventures on Instagram to know more about it), I’ve decided to buy it for myself!
I am talking about Estroverso, the wine glass by Gumdesign.
Besides being a product that is displayed in some of the most important museums in the world, it caught my eye for one particular detail… do you want to know which one? Look:
As you can see, its peculiarity lies in the base that is curved outwards (convexed).
This “small” but very important design intervention makes Estroverso functional and metaphorical at the same time.
It not only allows the wine to be decanted with a simple gesture (excellent functionality), but it also literally gives life and dynamism to the object (extroversion metaphor), which becomes a tool of curiosity and interaction between the diners and therefore also it becomes a creator of human relations.
Although Estroverso is characterized by a playful spirit and is perfectly suited for the convivial, look how elegant and sinuous are the shapes that characterize it!
This product, and all that I’m telling you, reinforces even more my conviction that quality design resides in detail. It is just like this, with “simple” but functional interventions, that it is possible to give spirit to all the objects we have at home and in our daily lives.
Estroverso is brilliant, beautiful, and revolutionary. It’s definitely a must have for design lovers. Would be a perfect Christmas gift for your home? Or a present for your friends?
