‘decanter’ is an intriguing combination of italian design and wine culture, with special focus paid to details and process. created by dinn! for furniture company passoni nature, the collection is the result of meticulous research and an innovative alchemical process. the patented pellevino treatment® allows for unique, all-natural color shades by extracting tannins from the wood and blending them with various wines.

combination between wood and wine




to pay homage to the vino-culture, the pieces were named after a priceless tool. the decanter allows particularly old wines to oxygenate, which in turn punctuates each bottles aroma. finishes include rosè, dolcetto, san giovese, barricato, and aceto. as the wine ages in the wood, each furnishing is transformed bit by bit, resulting in a harmonious aging process that feels just right. the ‘decanter’ collection includes chairs (with and without arms), a stool, and a small table. all were presented at the salone del mobile 2015.

  • Hi Tran Le, the photographer (ikonphoto) used a special light setting with a filter and obviously Photoshop to reach the final effect.
