Whether tucked away in a dark place, pulled out for a religious ritual, or making the rounds at a house party, alcohol has a long history as a social practice. Condemned by some and welcomed by others, alcohol depends on its container. Its social function means nothing without something to hold it. Sometimes the container conceals the drink, allowing it to remain hidden and unknown. Other times the container identifies the drink and celebrates it. From quick chugs to popping champagne bottles, the container defines the etiquette of consumption.
The Decant collection plays with the tension between celebrating the consumption of alcohol and forbidding it. Assembled from the superposition of layers of Corian, the decanters hide the liquid inside and conceal the carafe’s stopper. The decanters’ shapes, however, reveal their intended storage and are meant to emphasize the ritual and aesthetic practices of alcohol consumption. The acrylic container is lead-free to preserve the quality of its contents.
