Libation station: Wine is a fixture in Vienna

22 : 10 : 2012 Design : Sensory Splurge : Cuisine

Vienna – Spanish ‘food designer’ Martí Guixé turned his attention to drinks at Vienna Design Week earlier this month, deconstructing the idea of the wine bottle and rebuilding it into a piece of furniture that evokes boxed wine.

Using his Free Port cabinet design as a base, Guixé created a playful arrangement of the sensory elements associated with wine. An oversized cork re-interprets a frequently discarded material into a permanent objet d’art, while a drip-painted rug is inspired by the aesthetics of wine labels. Lights are suspended atop wires meant to evoke grapevines.

The installation also doubles as a decanter. A bag of wine can be placed inside an earthen jug with a tap for distribution. Guixé says that, like the bag-in-the-box container, his installation creates a ‘different perception’ of wine.
