Petit Coeur Glasses

Drinking wine (especially red) from an anatomically-inspired heart-shaped glass seems a bit creepy. But Etienne Meneau’s new limited-edition line of wineglasses, comprised of glass tubes that are meant to evoke the main arteries in the heart, are actually elegant and quite pretty.

The down side:  there’s no room to swirl or aerate the wine, and they must be impossible to clean. They’re not for the clumsy either, as they also come with a hefty price tag: Each 7-inch glass costs over R12 000.
