Corvi Wine and Champagne Coolers

Glasses are being raised around the globe in celebration of a sophisticated wine cooler that sees modern art matched with functionality.

The Corvi Wine and Champagne Coolers are a striking range of handcrafted concrete vessels that use an advanced casting method to maximise the strength and mass of concrete in a contemporary and slender form.

Designed by Argentinian-based Francisco Corvi for IntoConcrete, the concrete coolers are surprisingly lightweight. They are available in a range of colours, such as Arctic White and Graphite grey, and can be stacked on top of each other so you can create your own modern masterpiece in the form of a wine rack. This makes it hard to stop at just one.

The inspiration for the stackable nature came at an early age for the designer, who says, “Every toy I had as a child was disassembled and assembled again using other things. This curiosity was my first design influence.”

After being placed in the freezer, the coolers remain chilled for many hours due to their mass and add a sleek elegance to any social gathering. Clean, sharp planes give them a jewel-like quality and their smooth surface is minimalist and edgy.

The rule of thumb is to serve white wine at 7-12˚C and concrete is the ideal material for maintaining the ideal temperate. We’ll drink to that!
