The Chop Carafe is based on the observation that if one takes a volume it can be cut in and fold it out to create a snout. The carafes are made from standard aluminum profiles which are cut in and a segment is removed. Adding a bottom- and a “V” shaped plate the parts are then welded together into the final shape. After grinding and pearling they are anodized and coated against fruit acids. The carafes hold between 0,7 to 1,0 liters and are made for liquids like wine, water or juices. There are three different basic shapes based on round, square and rectangular aluminum profiles. The snout folds out 30 degrees. Since on the square and rectangular carafe they fold out diagonally one ends up with an either left-handed or right-handed version. Designed by Amsterdam-based designer Michael Schoner.
