Nominated at Kyoorius Design Awards 2019, The Cage which is a whiskey decanter, was announced as the winner for ‘Innovative Product Design’. This award honours the designs, designers and the unique design oriented philosophy at Shaze. What makes The Cage unique is that it houses a glass decanter which is released in a theatrical reflex. It spreads its fins to release the clear-cut carafe and reveals it in its stunning form. In combination with a bell crank lever assembly of the finest quality, this entire contraption has a dramatic effect as it opens up like poetry in motion. This is a sight to behold and a tour-de-force of conceptual theatrics. The Cage’s cork, with its sleek metallic accents, is rendered stunning when fitted atop the neck with crystalline detailing. The entire apparatus contours a bold silhouette and is cultured with detailed hand-cut crystal glass. This one of a kind piece is available in 4 different colours to appease the eclectic taste of our clients. These colours include Warm Gold, Rose Gold, Gunmetal Silver and Electric Blue. The Cage reveals flashes of the contained drink shining through and renders a stunning visual for the enthusiasts to savour. Irrespective of the social setting, conversations and high-drama are sure to follow with this piece of Shaze barware.
