Spanish designer Martí Guixé presented an instillation at Sotheby’s in Vienna earlier this month that constitutes of an oversized cork in a handmade base, ten wine glassesand a vase with wine on top, two lamps suspended by thin wires and a rug made by the designer for Spanish rug makers Nanimarquina.
The designer shares to Dezeen:
For around two years I have been fascinated by the “bag in the box” wine storage and transportation system, not only from its technical qualities but also from its characteristics, a quite different way of keeping, serving and drinking wine; a different perception of it.
Still Life with Light is an installation about the end of the classic glass wine bottle, but keeping the basic elements, the label, the cork, and the vine, also when in form of symbolic representations.
Still Life with Light is made with the Free Port prototype, 10 wine glasses, 2 Cyclops lamps, a piece of cork, fliers, a carpet and a handmade vase full of a ‘bag in the box’ of red wine.
