Always interested in niche design ideas and design objects, we recently came across a piece by Greek architect/designer Ioannis Samelis. It is named Antllia Amphora and is a handmade ceramic decanter/bottle. The name and partly its shape were inspired by the water pumpkin that in Peloponese and in particular Pylos, was called Antllia. As for the amphora prefix, it is referred to the ancient Greek term used to describe a vessel that was used for wine and sometimes for oil and water. The Greek architect designed his object in such a way that it has two mounting positions so as to be used for multiple purposes. Samelis also put an external finish in matt colors and an internal that makes it suitable for oil, wine and water.
With a capacity of 1.3lt., Antilla Amphora is a practical, unique and stylish piece that will excite your guests! Available in matt black, white and olive green at Oikos.
