The Porthole


The simplest, most gorgeous design we've seen in a while comes in the form of a portal to where infusion takes place, be that for oils, teas, cocktails and the like. Or should we say Porthole, as the device is called—inspired by the submarine porthole in Karel Zeman's 1958 movie 'The Fabulous World of Jules Verne," pictured here.

Designed by Martin Kastner of Crucial Detail, the Porthole's journey began as a solution produced solely for Chicago drink hotspot The Aviary, which led to  a Kickstarter campaign that raised leaps and bounds over its asking price.

And we can see why. No need to go into how well form and function are married here—the device speaks for itself through providing a looking glass to a process, and in turn acting as wonderful, natural decor.

So how to get your hands on one of these sleek design world darlings? Information can be gotten here and here. And view the original Kickstarter campaign here—the story of how it came to be is fascinating.
