The design of the Kotoli box was inspired by birds resting on wires. A silver ring enables the stemless champagne flutes to balance on the bottle, the picnic box or on a specially designed birds-nest restaurant tray. The top of the box opens to reveal a champagne bucket.

The design aims to bring a new perspective to urban living, encouraging people to enjoy the city through picnicking rather than escaping from it.
