Homer Simpson Wine

homer-wine

Although, wine might be a little too high-brow for Homer Simpson, designers Constantin Bolimond and Dmitry Patsukevich brings us a Simpsons-inspired wine.

Claiming to have been created 25 years ago “as an experiment to make people speculate as to what’s actually in the wine bottle,” the design is inspired by the minimalist style of Mondrian.

Whether there’s an actual wine in the bottle is up for debate… although we think the bottle copy is a cryptic message that simply refers to the television series itself. All design and no wine makes Homer something, something.

The Doublet, A Double-Sided Wine Glass For Reds and Whites

doublet_01

If you’re not sure whether you’ll be serving a red wine or a white wine, you could just have an appropriate glass available for each. But that sounds like a lot of work.

The Doublet is an ingenious way to save you some trouble, by providing a compartment for both reds and whites. Even an official oenophile or self-proclaimed wine snob could appreciate the convenience.

The design is currently only a concept. So, in the meantime, have all of your glasses at the ready for when the wine snobs come over.

Wine Packaged In A Paint Bucket

Couleur-Nouveau-(2)

Just when we thought that we’d seen it all with wine in a purse, there’s now wine in a bucket. More specifically, it’s wine packaged in a paint bucket – a design concept by Lithuania-based ad agency, McCann Vilnius.

Created to help commemorate Beaujolais Nouveau — the release of new red wines from the French region of Beaujolais — the bucket o’ wine acts as a storage and handy pouring device.

It also provides a color chart, letting the drinker know how many glasses of wine it might take to “paint” your teeth various shades of purple. So, who wants to come over for a painting party?

A Special Glass To Help Coca-Cola Taste Better Exists

coke-glass

Until now, we’ve been left to drink our beloved Coca-Cola out of regular non-fancy glasses, or straight from the two-liter. Well, no more.

Coca-Cola and glassmaker Riedel teamed up to design a drinking vessel that they hope will make your Coke taste better.

Just like the wine glasses that Riedel are best known for, the new soda glass hopes to enhance your whole Coke-drinking experience. No longer will we miss out on those subtle notes of high fructose corn syrup, and that mid-palate hint of caramel color. Sorry.. Big Gulp Riedels are not available.
