After Marc Newson’s Shaker “Cosmo” and Jasper Morrison’s “Bolly” bottle cooler, here is the next episode in the bar and wines saga that over the last few years we have been writing for the new century. Ron Arad has excelled himself creating a small family of objects that, as usual, are not only heavily iconic on the aesthetic plane, but each is hallmarked by an innovative, curious performance: the twisted shape of the shaker should make you think that the liquid inside is going to “twist”, then there is the “spindle-type” movement of the stirrer and the handbag-style two-bottle cooler that you can even hang from the table, which are just some of the more appealing examples of the attention-grabbing effect that is achieved with an unexpected application of a specific shape/function to a completely new typological context. Marta Sansoni, on the other hand, is offering us her double wall steel ice bottle stand, a handsome example of the historic and precious matelassé process for metals.
