BLinD Wine { j i Z e R a m o u n ta i n s, C Z e C H R e p u b l i C } When oenophiles taste wine, the importance of visually assessing the contents of a glass is well understood. To challenge this step, Eva Mochalová and Marcel Mochal of LLEV Product Design designed the Decci, a black, glossy, opaque wine glass that masks the drinker’s ability to see its liquid contents. ”You can’t see wine when you drink from the Decci black but you can smell it; in this way, you perceive wine in a different way“ Eva shares. The Decci set contains glasses for red and white wine, water or beer, a decanter and champagne also comes in crystal.

When Philipp, an amateur baker, recognized he was missing a Brandenburg Gate cookie cutter in his collection, the Berlin based family therapist sought to make one himself. After locating a suitable manufacturer in Berlin who could produce the famous monument, Philipp’s cookie cutter was completed in 2007. He recognized his Brandenburg Gate cookie cutter not only cut out great cookie buildings but also were useful as souvenirs.  He set up his company, Phil Goods, and proceeded to design 21 global monuments, as well as, a celebrity series of prominent people such as Johann Sebastian Bach and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Each cookie cutter comes with Philipp’s favourite vanilla cookie recipe.
