Our wine rack is a a tribute to the forests and a significant artistic gesture towards peace. Its symbolism is as strong as its beauty and its smart design.
Influenced by the Ready-made and the minimalist art, we convert authentic wooden ammunition boxes from the 60-70s into functionnal objects with genuine aging and historic background. REmade in our studio in an old chocolate factory in Montreal, this wine rack is the sweetest you can find!
Small and smart, you can either have it stand safely on the ground or easily mount it on the wall. It's the perfect gift for the wine lover, the design aficionado and the history buff. It suits the cottage as well as the dining room, the tiny kitchen or the walk-in cellar. Inhabited by a soul, witness of a history, the vintage boxes have become rarities after being discarded by millions. We are proud to offer this conversation piece in a limited edition.
For you who know us already, yes we're back! After 9 years at OOAK, from 2001 to 2009, we stopped the production because the original boxes had become very hard to find and we had a few calls for other creations in different artistic fields such as theater and cinema. Last year, we challenged ourselves to find more boxes and after almost abandoning the idea, we finally found some small sources, jumped in a plane, rented a truck, travelled in 5 different states dowm in the US and came back with enough inventory to restart the production! We still got phone calls on a regular base and the Boxes never left us as our home is profusely decorated with them! It's a real pleasure to be back at OOAK with this unique creation which is part of two museums collections and which took part of several exhibits in galleries and museums in North America and in Europe.
