Pouring Your Heart Out: Etienne Meneau's Tubular Decanters

wine1008
Usually here at Refinery29 we reserve ourselves to one or two design posts a year, but today we have more than willingly made an exception for these jaw droppingly cool decanters spotted on Design*Sponge. Etienne Meneau's sculptural carafes are part of a limited edition collection called Petit Coeur (meaning "little heart," in the unofficial language of wine, French.) Though there made be some fundamental issues with their practicality (cleaning for example) there's no questioning their aesthetic value. And just think, these vein-like creations would make the perfect Halloween dinner-party centerpiece. (Design*Sponge)
