This is a wine chest I built to store up to 12 bottles. The overall aesthetic was informed by this narrative excerpt to be characteristic of a windmill:

“In an immense synthesis, we should dream at the same time of a winged house that whines at the slightest breeze and refines the energies of the wind. Millers, who are wind thieves, make good flour from storms.” -Gaston Bachelard, the Poetics of Space

After some research, I saw that windmills were also found on vineyards. Opting for this interpretation, I reasoned that I could store wine for longer periods of time than I could store bread (or any other staple made with flour) in a breadbox. I’ve also posted this project on behance here along with some of my other portfolio work. Enjoy!

Very nice work and interesting to boot. The more I looked at it, the more it grew on me. Nice concept.

Great looking wine chest—some Oregon Pinot Noir would go very well in there!
