We just love the new Corvi Concrete Wine Cooler, an extravagant design for wine lovers and those who just love to entertain, by designer Fran Corvi of Argentina-based studio PPi3D. The wine cooler is a sleek and stylish alternative for those searching for a sophisticated way to store their most prized bottle of vintage. Inspired by the simplicity of stone, the cooler’s clean, sharp lines offer a refined interpretation of the features of a gem. The product is handmade in Chicago from soft concrete, a material developed in Sweden, which conveys strength in a slender profile; the vessel feels smooth to the touch. This strikingly modern piece is rooted in designer Francisco Corvi’s heritage: “In Argentina, wine is a symbol of high society. The wine cooler is a piece of me, my roots and my life.”
This stunning product retails at $75 and can be found at the unique online establishment of IntoConcrete, where you can find everything you need to outfit your home.
Aside from its contemporary appeal, concrete is a perfect practical medium for temperature maintenance. After being placed in the freezer, it stays chilled for quite a while because of its mass. Single coolers can be stacked in endless design arrangements to make a customized wine cellar.
