More and more wine lovers are leaning towards a minimalist, but modern charm, to their wine cellars. The appeal of a “modern chic” style to wine cellar projects has definitely come into its own.
Having anticipated this, Wine Cellar Innovations developed a new racking design that is now part of its Modern Wine Cellar collection – the Glass Enclosed Acrylic Cube Series.
From small cellars, to large wine rooms, these racking units can bring a truly unique look to your contemporary wine storage.
Being glass enclosed, the acrylic material inside provides a see-through experience for the entire project.
This gives wine bottles that whimsical “floating” appearance.
This is one way of achieving “invisible racking” or an “invisible wine cellar.” Moreover, the racks have flexible configurations, making them convenient to work with.
They interlock both side to side and top to bottom. This allows for the seamless creation of full racking from floor to ceiling.
“Acrylic racks offer spacious and elegant views, from wine rooms to living areas,” said Jim Deckebach, CEO of Wine Cellar Innovations.
“That’s why clients will definitely love them.”
You can see how these two separate projects showcase just how versatile the acrylic racks are and how they can be utilized in a bevy of design concepts.
The first is an actual, glass-enclosed wine cellar with an impressive 952-bottle capacity.
WCI’s design team took special care in the proper refrigeration and door seal to ensure the maintenance of ideal wine storage conditions.
Note that the refrigeration unit is a ceiling mount system.
This is certainly not an easy task. Nonetheless, WCI has over a 30 years’ worth of experience in the installation of glass wine cellars.
The second project is something loaded with so much character as well. This is not a wine rack or a wine cellar, but a transparent room divider, courtesy of the acrylic racking.
It is not enclosed or refrigerated, but the bottles are stored safely and comfortably.
The invisible racks create partition without making the space look cramped at all. Both the invisible wine cellar and invisible room divider give off that modern feel, without compromising on elegance.
