Wine Thermometer, FahrenheitPrice: $29.95
Design by Jakob Wagner.
By Menu A/S.
The Wine Thermometer is really easy to use. And you do not have to open the bottle to read the wine temperature. All you have to do is place the Wine Thermometer around the bottle like a wristwatch and after a short time you will be able to read the temperature on the digital display. The numbers are clearly visible and thus easy to read - even at a distance.
Durable, the Wine Thermometer will withstand quite rough treatment. It can take being dropped on the floor, a hard blow in a suitcase and will even withstand the loving caresses of the youngest in the family. It can be cleaned easily with a cloth, and fits into a drawer, on a tray or on your kitchen shelves, so it's always there when you need it.
Material(s): Black plastic with steel rim and digital display
Dimensions: 1.6" H x 2.8" Dia.
Designer: Jakob Wagner
Jakob Wagner was born in Copenhagen, Denmark, in 1963 and received his first design degree in his home town. After attending several international schools he graduated from the Art Center in Montreux, Switzerland, with a degree in product design in 1992.
He immediately set up his own studio in Copenhagen and for the first 5 years of his career he worked with sports and professional equipment for clients such as Porsche and Pioneer. Though, gradually he gained interest in objects for the home. On his design philosophy, Jakob says: "I often try to create a kind of balanced tension between opposite qualities in the object. I play with static versus dynamic expression, symmetry versus asymmetry, masculine versus feminine, organic versus geometric, etc. This challenges our senses, makes an object come alive and touches us emotionally."
In 2003, he was awarded The Danish Arts Foundation Three-Year honorable Bursary. Jakob's work is often part of exhibitions in Scandinavia and around the world, including the Museum of Modern Art, New York, where he had his first object included in the permanent collection in 2006. In autumn 2008, Jakob won the award as Denmark's "Best Designer" by one of the leading interior magazines.View other products by Jakob Wagner
