Vin de table

Words:
Jan-Carlos Kucharek

‘They are not long, the days of wine and roses,’ said the melancholic 19th century English poet Ernest Dowson. But Swiss architect Bureau Hindermann’s wine drawer is long – very long in fact – at 5m. Asked to design the crafted oak table for a noted Zürich wine maker for its tasting evenings, the firm based its concept on a matchbox principle, with a single drawer that can be pulled open on runners from either end, revealing their range of wines, and bringing a whole new meaning to ‘slowly sliding under the table’.
