A Milan-based design showroom called PaolaC, released a design challenge during Milan’s design week to the students of Bozen-Bolzano University to create a tableware collection informed by food, health and eating habits; and that is exactly what up-and-coming designer, Liviana Osti, did. Osti was born in Trento, Italy, in 1989 and was studying design at the time of the competition.
The carafe, entitled “Cuore” (which means heart in Italian) is made out of blown pyrex and is actually two separate pieces. When joined together, the two vessels (which act as two disparate ventricles) form a heart. One vessel is intended to hold 1.5L of red wine, while the other holds an equal amount of water – the colours of each liquid are symbolic to the product’s design according to Osti, “…the red wine represents low pressure, and the clear water represents high pressure.” This carefully considered design (assuming the designer is referring to blood pressure) succeeds in commenting on health and eating habits through the use of a anatomical-shaped product – there is surely a bright future ahead of this young, inspired designer.
