george lee: a date with wine

‘a date with wine’

new york-based designer george lee, founder of le mouton noir & co., whose ‘tea time‘ project we previously featured,
has sent us his newest product, a wine stopper called ‘a date with wine’.

in trying to keep his design modern with a bit of an industrial look, the stopper is made from a food-grade stainless
steel and silicone. the main feature of this device is that it comes with twistable date rings which help users
remember when they have opened their bottles of wine, allowing them to decide whether or not their wine is
still drinkable.
