The Porthole

The Porthole is the name of the glass infuser for liquids designed by Crucial Detail design studio in Chicago. It was a very successful project on crowdfunding site Kickstarter. Made of iron and glass, the beautiful infusion vessel can be used to make all kinds of drinks, but also as a work of art. Cocktails, salad dressings, coffee, tea and other infusions, all this can be done with The Porthole vessel. Just load it with fruit, herbs or whatever else you want, press the glass plates against one another and pour the liquid through the opening.

The product received an investment of $736,000 trough backers on Kickstarter. To better understand why it was such a success, watch the video after the jump.
