Every once in a while I stumble on something that forces me to take a second look. Rain Man is a hand blown glass decanter from Swedish glass works Skruf.
The simple and elegant design is function first, form second. The circular disc that allows the wine to pass through maximizes aeration helping the wine to open and breathe, and helps to strain any sediment before reaching the glass.
Rain Man, was designed by Swedish designer, Matilda Sundén Ringnér, for Skruf Glasbruk. Rain Man runs about $50.00, and is available here. I think it’s time to head home and open that bottle of Opus One I have been saving.
