A Platform for Your Wine Bottle

An unusual brass wine coaster just landed in the gift shop at the Glass House, the Philip Johnson residence in New Canaan, Conn., that’s now a museum. It has a bulge in the middle to fit the punt, or depression, at the bottom of most wine bottles, making it look, ever so slightly, like the sculpture of a fried egg. Eventual scratches are said to be part of its charm. It was created by Claesson Koivisto Rune, a Swedish design group, for Skultuna 1607.
