Two different good ink bottle designs

Pilot's Iroshizuku bottles have something more really should have: A depression in the bottle so you can get out more ink without leaning the bottle. But since it's there, why does the bottle have to be so tall and narrow? I think that's not a practical design decision, but to make them look good. And take up more shelf space if you place them with the sticker facing out.

Lamy's design is very good. It has a usefully large depression in the bottom, but not a very thick glass bottom, instead there's a plastic holder for wiping tissues filling a combined function. This is typically very good Lamy design.
