Vij5 \Schenk

Bas van Raay together with Vij5

The carafe ‘Schenk’ (Dutch for ‘pour’) creates a totally different ritual to serving and pouring water.

Inspired by the way the string is wound back on a kite, the bottle has specially placed handles. They look strange at first but once they are used, the act becomes instinctive: the position of the handles makes it possible to pour water out of the carafe very controlled and dosed by a simple tilt movement.

The carafe can be used by both left- and right-handed due to the sprouts on both sides of the top.
