Ambiente preview: Zieher

During upcoming consumer goods show, Ambiente 2017, which runs February 10-14, Zieher will present its new sommelier-designed Eddy decanter

As part of its Exclusive Interior Accessories brand, Zieher will deliver a number of launches. Made of solid walnut wood, and sealed with oils to give a silk-matt gloss, Donna is softly curving form that acts as a cushion-like platform for everything from fruit, to accessories.

The Eddy decanter, designed by Silvio Nitzsche, defines the world of extreme wine instruments in a completely new way. Made of extremely robust high-grade borosilicate glass – delivering extraordinary transparency and hardness – the decanter features conical indentations, providing not just visually interesting colour reflections, but also a swirling process, which is equivalent to “an oxidation reaction of several hours,” says Silvio. 

Due to its flattened bottom, the decanter stands up straight and safely, the enclosed base is made of matt black silicone, allowing an inclined positioning.
