Based on a continuous loop, Chris Martin designed the wine rack in an unbroken line of wood, where the bottles rest firmly in milled-out compartments. Silo holds its bottles securely and in a horizontal position. The bottles have a 3.87 degree inclination to keep the wine in constant contact with the cork, something that stops the cork from drying out and spoiling the wine.
Silo is a wine rack that takes its name from containers and the friend of the Greek wine god, Silenus. The rack which has a typology taken from traditional wine cellars can store 4 bottles per unit and can be stacked up to four units high.
The Little Things is a collection of smaller furniture pieces and accessories designed by the company’s design director Chris Martin. In The Little Things, Chris Martin gave special attention to smaller objects that we encounter in our everyday lives and perhaps take for granted. The collection was designed with the aim of creating objects with the ability to gild everyday life.
“I wanted to change the scale of the things I normally design. It turned out that it is a similar process as when I design furniture, it is the same struggle, even for smaller objects. But the reward is worth it, because as the saying goes, it’s the little things that make a big difference,” says Chris Martin.
