We're surprised to find ourselves so admiring a product made of plastic foam. Here's the case for this clever wine rack by Dutch designer Robert Bronwasser:
- It's made of expanded polypropylene, which is one of the least harmful plastics to manufacture. It's commonly used as a packing material for high-end electronic goods that must have the best protection against shipping damage possible.
- It is light weight, which means it is not carbon-intensive to ship.
- It's stackable, so several can be piled on a floor or countertop to save space—turning your wine stash into an aesthetic object.
We spotted the Grape in Danish home magazine Bo Bedre
, then found it online at goods.nl
(in Dutch), on the designer's own site
, and available for purchase in the US at Greener Grass Design
. (That link gets you to the product, but seems to break the interface for the rest of the Greener Glass site. Start here
to see everything they carry.)
Nota bene: we can't figure out if wall mounting hardware is included or if it requires a separate kit, so that's something to clarify before you buy.
