Introducing the Ribbon Wine Rack for Alessi
The Ribbon wine rack, designed for Alessi, is both a storage device and an object for the table display of fine wines.
Inspired by the Möbius loop, single strips of stainless steel are joined at each end to form a loop. The sides of this loop are then twisted upwards to form a delicate cradle which supports as it weaves itself around the bottle. Each row of curved loops is then mirrored vertically, creating a stacked display.
Ben van Berkel: “Ribbon wraps and embraces fine wines like a ribbon embellishing a gift. It alludes to and accentuates the anticipation of discovery, of surprise and of the pleasure of the aromas and flavours that await.”
