Electric Air Vacuum Pump SAKE SAVER
The SAKE SAVER prevents oxidation of an unfinished bottle of Japanese rice wine by electrically pumping air out from inside the bottle and creating a vacuum. To blend in with the atmosphere of sake enjoyment, two colors were produced: ceramic black, to conjure up an image of earthenware sake set pleasant to the touch, and porcelain white, to conjure up an image of a one-of-a-kind earthenware that matches fine, good quality sake. Graphics that bring out the elation of drinking sake were developed for press events, online releases, catalogs and packaging.
