geometric volumes are chopped and folded to form a spout in this series ‘chop carafe’ by amsterdam-based designer michael schoner. deviating from commonly-shaped pouring devices, the spout is angled at 30 degrees, with the diagonal feature on the square and rectangular version allowing for both a right-handed or left-handed option. constructed from standard aluminum profiles, regularly used in the building industry, the object is welded together with a ‘v’ shaped plate to create the final form. following this, a process of grinding and pearling occurs with the materials being anodized and coated against fruit acids. the initial prototypes were tried out in amsterdam, but after a trip to instanbul the hands on mentality of local craftsmen helped to solve the final design. the carafes can hold between 0.7 to 1.0 liters and are intended to be used for liquids such as wine, water or juices. the design comes in three different basic shapes, based on round, square and rectangular aluminum profiles.
