Is design able to save endangered craft?
The design of this wine cooler combines two old crafts methods: basketry and ceramics. The material properties of the double-layered reed weave and terracotta have a thermal insulation effect and so the wine stays cool over and extended time.
If you think of Portugal you will probably imagine colorful ceramic tiles. What comes to mind when you think of Macedonia? In time of cultural fluctuation Macedonia tries to find its identity. These modular tiles are a suggestion inspired by traditional Macedonian pattern.
