Located this quirky yet unique device to uncork a bottle of wine and decant it afterwards. The designer describes it…
In a nutshell, this elaborate corkscrew by British designers at Oneofonehundred is kind of like a cross between orrerys, elaborate clocks, and a Rube Goldberg machineall wrapped up with a steampunk vibe.
Perhaps a bit of overkill, but its quite nice to see the device in action, especially watching the brass cog, flywheels and associated devices work in unison to perform its ultimate function – pour a glass of wine. A bit of overkill, but a marvel to watch – do enjoy!
