FAITES VOTRE CHOIX :
3 good reasons
- you like the good things in life: opening a good bottle of wine with a foil cutter is a deep source of pleasure for you
- you are a bit on the fussy side and insist that the foil on your bottle be cut where you want it cut, and not just any foil cutter will do (ours will, of course)
- you have already invested in the Normann Wine & Bar series and wish to complete your collection
how does it work?
- wine bottle and foil cutter in hand, set the bottle down, preferably on a counter or table for security reasons.
- Hold the foil cutter in the palm of your hand and wrap your thumb around the neck of the bottle, to adjust the pressure.
- keeping the pressure on, turn the bottle in a full circle
- voila, the foil is cut. You can now use the cutter like a knife to remove the rest of the foil
We love the Normann Copenhagen Wine & Bar series at LaPaDD, created by French designer Aurélien Barbry. The series beautifully combines the Danish functionalist heritage (all of these products are very efficient and easy to use), sustainable materials that respect the environment (cork, steel, aluminum, 100% cardboard packaging) with a terrific, innovative design
Thanks to their impeccable packaging, the different elements of the Wine & Bar series make excellent gifts that you can offer one year after the next, adding a new accessory each time!
Cork is an extraordinary material whose virtues are often overlooked, even if nowadays it is making a comeback in design objects:
- by definition, cork is a renewable resource and a partner in sustainable development, because a farmed cork tree captures two times as much CO2 as a wild cork tree.
- Portugal, which today produces more than 60% of the world's cork, has a long history of cork farming and conservation techniques that date back to the 12th century. Cork was used in the late middle ages in the construction of caravels (the ocean-going ships used by Portuguese explorers), particularly for ships exposed to harsh weather. Thus, cork aided the discoveries of courageous explorers like Bartolomeu Dias, Vasco de Gama and Magellan!
- cork is rot-resistant, extremely lightweight, waterproof, and fairly air-tight, as well as flexible and compressible, an excellent insulator against heat and sound, fire resistant and very durable.
natural: a little stainless steel and a lot of cork gives this foil cutter a look that goes as well in a rustic kitchen as in an ultra-modern one thanks to the skills of a French designer and the high standards of a talented Danish design firm.
sturdy: thanks to its ultra-simple design (a steel blade wrapped in a block of cork), the Normann foil cutter will last a very long time and can be handed down from one generation to another.
functional: this foil cutter, with its straightforward conception, offers more flexibility than many similar products on the market: you cut where you want, on the bottom of the bottleneck, or a little higher, or a little lower, as you like it.
