'Molekul' Wine Rack
This is Molekul. A wine rack inspired by the inter-connecting components of a biological molecule. The idea behind the project was to rethink the way wine bottles are stored, merging its function with the organic structure of a molecule, which results in a playful manner for a wine rack.

The object is made out of solid resin and metal rods. The 'core', in the shape of a truncated octahedron, is made by mixing liquid resin together with fillite powder which are then poured into a silicone mold. After the mix hardens, a hole of about 4mm in diameter and 15mm deep is drilled into the faces of the core, where the metal rod will connect. Each one of the cores are then sanded in order to achieve the rough texture, similar to that of concrete. Together, all these components create a strong bond needed to support the weight of those wine bottles.
 
In total, this wine rack could store up to 4 bottles at a time.

'Molekul' wine rack was exhibited during Milan Design Week 2014 (8-13 April) in Zona Ventura Lambrate. 'Molekul' wine rack by Dolly Winata Loni is part of DIG('s) collection 'Our Kitchen', where it was exhibited alongside other kitchen products by members of the group DIG.
