VINO is a sustainable wine rack design to store both wine bottles and wine glasses. It consists of a wooden frame that holds and supports the felt, which is the material that holds the wine bottles and glasses.
Simplicity was a big design factor for both product design and branding. In addition, some design elements of the product were taken into consideration during the graphic design, such as the color and shape. The vine shape was a great element to consider, which ultimately influenced and defined the name of the product. VINO's spelling is similar to "vine," and it is the spanish translation for wine.
Felt with the right thickness can support a lot of weight without losing its shape. The felt attaches to the frame through special wooden buttons. In addition, a middle wooden bar provides stability and structure for the wine glasses. Both the bar and buttons give extra-weight support. At the top, the felt has some cuts to slide which hold the wine glasses. To provide support, the felt snaps on three different areas creating the vine shape to hold the wine bottles. VINO has a capacity of six bottles and six wine glasses.
