Artisan Cellars by Asylum
The design of Artisan Cellars, a high-end wine retail space specializing in small production vineyards, stands in contrast to other cookie-cutter cellar spaces. Wine-worthy quotes by renowned writers, like Galileo Galilei’s “Wine is sunlight, held together by water” and Norman Douglas’ “Wine is a precarious aphrodisiac, and its fumes have blighted many,” are etched into understated white-washed walls.
What you see here – all these beautiful photos are from the showroom belonging to those from Artisan Cellars and believe me, it’s no easy thing to design such a showroom for a wine producer. Besides the design that must be special and attractive and must be adjusted to be connected somehow with wine and vineyards and wineries, you must also make sure the wine displayed there is kept in the optimum conditions so as not to ruin it by mistake.
You may not know it but the best and most expensive bottles of wine in the world are quite pricey. So the displaying of the bottles must be made in a room with an optimum temperature where the wine bottles are placed in an inclined shelf which prevents the air of coming into contact with the cork and this way ruin the wine. These shelves are perfectly designed to be both functional and nice looking and the show room looks just like a classy cellar. People come there to taste and to enjoy the view and the wine quotation carved in marble are the perfect atmosphere for this.
