Warmth, proximity and humour build the essence from Wine & Bar from Aurélien Barby. Wine & Bar is a complete accessories series for the wine enjoyment that was designed in an appealing and friendly form in cork. Its design is organic and with an obvious functionality. From this series at first three different wine closures and one closure with a combined nozzle-spout are offered.
The idea is based on the tradition-rich wine production in which cork is used as closure for wine bottles. However different material is also used nowadays. Aurélien Barby has created an original wine accessories series in which ironically cork is implanted as the most important material. Every product has been individually shaped, so that for example one of the closures has the form of a wine glass. At the same time the different parts build a harmonic whole.
Aurélien Barby says: ”Every-day objects are the starting point of my designs. I redefine their usage and invent different layouts and expressions that revitalize the object. At the enjoyment of a glass of wine a decorative a functional closure for the wine bottle is often forgotten in the day-by-day. I found it interesting to employ cork at a wine accessories series because it is a true material that was traditionally used as a wine bottle closure. Cork radiates warmth for me, and it offers a natural look to the series. Wine & Bar is a homage to the everyday dinner table.”
Wine & Bar lock wine bottles reliably and can be used continually. With Wine & Bar serving wine is even a greater pleasure, whether in our everyday as for special reasons.
