Zinco Arte: NEXT Interior Lifestyle Tokyo 2013
Found this clever wine serving accessory in the booth next to the booth of my favorite Interior Lifestyle Tokyo lighting find, Washi Paper Light Pendants by Sachie Muramatsu. How can you not just love this idea – mixing table sculpture with incredible everyday utility? Organic, yet modern, structured, configurable metal (it’s a zinc alloy with various finish options) tree branches serving as chic wine glass and stemware holders. Loved it, and as if that wasn’t clever enough, Zinco Arte, has more useful artful objects for the home.
My other favorite is a metal wine rack and glass holder that doubles as a contemporary dish drying rack, or vice versa, it’s all up to the user. And what makes this even more beautiful from a design perspective is that the metal stand can be configured to function based on whatever the users desires it to function as. Nifty design discovery for those with limited living and storage space, as it can double as more than one object, and when not in use it is an interesting piece of modern sculpture for the home.
