Starting your own wine collection, but have yet to reach full scale? Here’s a great piece from one of our favorite eco-designers that gives you a way to store some bottles before you open up a full-on cellar. A simple project designed by Deger Cengiz, the Wine Rack is made from 100% from waste material left over by the wine cork industry, with wine stoppers popped into the front to conceal the mounting screws. In addition to its eco-friendly design, the rack allows each bottle’s label to be displayed, providing the potential to “casually” strike up a conversation that showcases your knowledge of the best Burgundys and Barolos.
