Fran Corvi’s suitably names Corvi Wine Cooler takes cool to another level. Made from concrete, and moulded in a geometric form-mould, the result is one to match the most deserving of palettes. Each cooler can be stacked in an infinite array of designs to create a personalized wine cellar, and therefore pushes the boundaries of the expected formwork of the utilitarian object.
Based on Argentina, Corvi’s inspiration is deriven from this background, where the wine cooler is a piece of me, my roots and my life where it also stands as a status symbol. His material choice seems to match said intent of stature. The geometric form of the Wine Cooler is said to comprise a series of sharp planes that offer a refined interpretation of the facets of a gem which also functionally double as the connecting platform element also.
