Inspired by the Möbius loop, UNStudio designs the Ribbon wine rack as both, a storage device and an object for table display of fine wines.
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 that supports as it weaves itself around the bottle. Each row of curved loops is then mirrored vertically, creating a stacked display system.
Alluding to a ribbon wrapped around a precious gift, the soft steel loops delicately hold the bottles in the air, unique in structure, expressive in design, accentuating the anticipation of discovery, of surprise and of the pleasure of the aromas and flavours that await.
Ribbon can hold up to six bottles of the most popular styles on the market. The bottle holder comes in two versions, steel and Super Black.
