Noro No-Drip Lip Keeps Sticky Spills Off the Table
“Gooey substances such as syrup and olive oil spill all over the place with
their containers' drippy lips, but not if they're dispensed from the no-drip
two-lip pouring system from a Barcelona designer who calls himself Noro.
It's about time somebody designed one of these drip-free decanters for
viscous and edible liquids, because we've seen a similar technique in
containers of liquid laundry detergent for years.”

Drip-Free Oil Drizzler Drops in for Dinner
“This may come as a surprise to all you butter and chemically derived margarine
spreading Anglos, but here in the healthy center of Europe, spilled oil is a problem.
Not the slick, seabird killin’ kind, either — I’m talking about olive oil, the
cornerstone of the "Mediterranean diet", the mixture of wine, meat and fried foods
which keeps us enviably smooth skinned and skinny.
The problem is with the aceitera, the spouted bottle with which we drizzle the miracle elixir onto every mouthful. It drips, and those drips run down the sides of the bottle onto the table. It may not sound serious, but it’s a real nuisance in a country where oil is poured on everything, and our fiery Latin tempers can flare. Enter the Verte from Noro, a double-lipped concept aceitera which will catch drips and return them to the oily reservoir below. A simple idea, seen elsewhere in such mundane places as laundry soap bottles, but here it is somehow better, much like the lives of those who live in the oil-eating regions of the world, with our simple pleasures and traditional family values.
But we don’t expect you to care. Enjoy your smear of hydrogenated canola oil as you cram that sandwich into your mouth, still tapping away at the office computer. I’m off for a three hour lunch and then a siesta.”

Verte, The Two Lipped Non-Dripping Bottle
“Verte by Barcelona-based designer Noro is a bottle that features two lips to catch
spills and return them to inside the bottle. It's certainly classier looking and more
functional than the purple elephant spout (although I do have a soft spot in my
heart for the elephant). The more non-drip bottle designs we have the better, so
I don't have to keep wiping the sides of my unintentionally oil-slicked bottles.”

Verte No-drip Carafe
“Verte is a non-dripping carafe designed for lemarmenaje by barcelona based
design studio noro. the design comes in a variety of sizes and forms to use for
different liquids such as wine, oil, vinegar and water. The design uses a simple
lid to prevent liquids from spilling on the table. The lid features two lips, so that
when drips do occur they are caught by the second lip and funneled back into
the carafe. the unique lid is very functional, but also a distinctive design feature.”
