Diamond Wine Trivet Storage and display by Multiply Studio: Mark and Alice

Home > Winners > #54282


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Diamond Wine Trivet

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Storage and display

INSPIRATION:
We were initially drawn to wine because of the presentation and shared experience. Because of this, we were inspired to create wine storage that encouraged a communal experience and elevated presentation of new wines; one that involved the host enjoying their time with their guests wherever they chose to be. The Diamond Wine Trivet's mid-century modern look is actually inspired by tartrates or "wine diamonds", a potassium bitartrate crystal that separates out of wine during the aging process.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The Diamond Wine Trivet's is made in white oak and shaped to cradle 6 bottles with up-turned edges so that it is easily moved with its companions. The Diamond Wine Trivet was designed with scaling and multi-function in mind- It can be used to stack and keep bottles on their side as wine is meant to be stored, or spread them out for display and selection.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The Diamond Wine Trivet is for tabletop storage and sharing. Either side may be used and it can be stacked in conjunction with other Diamond Wine Trivets to house and share wine. Upturned edges on its sides allow for easy pickup and manipulation of stacked wine bottles.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
Started October 2015 and finished in December 2015 in Orange County California.

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
A solid slab of American white oak CNC milled and hand finished with Odie's Wood Butter.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Length-14 inches (355.6 mm) Width- 10 inches (254 mm) Height- 2 inches (50.8 mm)

TAGS:
wine rack, wine storage, wine tray, trivet, home accessory, oak, wood, wine diamond, diamond wine trivet

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The research that was conducted started with a competitive analysis of wine storage in the market. We examined a broad range of price-points, materials, designs, and functions. Our objective was to catalog how previous bottle storage had best enhanced the communal experience and presentation of wine. With a head full of wine storage facts and a glass full of inspiration, we sketched with the goal of creating simple and elegant storage that was inspired by our past positive experiences. After the sketches went through a rigorous critique and debate we began to experiment with prototypes that allowed for greater facilitation of our objectives. We received qualitative feedback on those prototypes from a focus group that concentrated on people’s memorable experiences with wine. This lead us to an unexpected but wine-inspired form-factor that allowed for easy movement and to use American White Oak, also used in the making of wine barrels. Through experimentation and design iterations, it was discovered that The Diamond Wine Trivet’s design and unique exposure of wood grain could only be achieved with the aid of a CNC milling machine. It is made and hand-finished in Orange County, Southern California with US sourced materials to ensure social responsibility.

CHALLENGE:
Initially, the biggest challenge was to create an object that facilitated wine sharing and presentation. Previous wine storage was either too static or too clumsy. With no sign-posts to follow, we had to experiment with ways to create an object that both complimented the experience of wine tasting and allowed for easy movement and storage. After we decided the basic use and function, the next challenge was to show off the luxurious grain and closed cellular structure for which wine makers originally prized white oak for. After several attempts at creating the final design through traditional methods, it was discovered that the open angle needed to safely cradle wine bottles could only be accomplished through a modern CNC machine. All pointing to our final challenge of dusting off our 3D modeling skills, purchasing a CNC machine, and creating our final vision.
