Clever Design?

Above is the winning design of a wine bottle by Viktor Pucsek for the “PapaMama Design Competition”.

The Vinho Verde (literally meaning "green wine") concept incorporates eco-friendly practices in the design of a very attractive bottle.

The bottle’s labels can be peeled off and folded up into paper cups. The unfortunate news for non-wine connoisseurs (and students) is that, being a green design, the bottle still uses a corkscrew, which means you cannot just enjoy the bottle on the side of the road when the mood takes you, the way you can with the tried and trusted pap-sak.
