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.

  • Simple idea, brilliant development, great work. A nice bottle of wine deserves a nice stopper like this no matter if you want date it. I love it. Seriously, where can I see it?

  • No need for this. Just write the date on the label/bottle and save your money. However, I like the design.

  • Now that is a brilliant idea! I love that the design and look was not sacrificed in order to accommodate the functionality. Thanks, [url=] Sanuk. [/url]

  • Happened to know the designer.
    And I know he always come up with a great idea and never stop thinking.
    His creatively is unstop-able.
    Proven here with his new design. Small thing, big thought, well executed.

  • how about the cork breaks when you open it? I think everyone has this experience breaking the cork. This is a thoughtful design eventhough I usually finish the bottle. I want one one my desk, it is handsome.

  • how about writing the date on the cork?

    sick of this
  • How neat! Very impressed, George.
