With the AIS Sommelier Lounge at Vinitaly, the Italian Sommelier Association, for 10 years, has wanted to dedicate a space for meetings and events during the fair, for all its members. The Costruzione del Gusto proposes a different theme every year, always link to the culture of wine and the table.
“Bottles and Cork” is the theme created in 2016. The Sommelier Lounge space was entirely covered with cork panels. Furniture was designed and created in sustainable materials such as coffee tables composed of laser-cut cork panels and supported by different shapes and sizes of wine bottles.
On the tables, cut bottles have been inserted, transformed into candle holders or cuttings (small vine plants) which, coherently with the other elements, insist on the eco-friendly theme of the set-up.
The team of La Costruzione del Gusto designed the set-up project, the furniture and the graphic design of this project.
