The decanter was created by Antonio Citterio and Toan Nguyen for the Finnish design manufacturer Iittala in 2004.
A decanter has two functions: It should allow wine to breathe, in order to release the flavours and bouquet that have been locked inside the wine; and it should let light ignite the ruby-red brilliance of a vintage wine. The Decanter fulfils both of them.
Citterio and Nguyen created a mouth-blown decanter with every element reduced to its purest, most essential functional purpose. With pure and well balanced lines, the decanter stands perfectly together with our various wineglasses – especially with the wine glasses of the Iittala Essence Series.
