Súber - wine bottle holder
aluminum + cork 
The appearance and texture of the leaves of cork oak, a raw material for the cork stoppers inspired the shape of this wine bottle holder.

The union of cork with the cast aluminum gives the piece not only beauty but also the symbolism of the wine ritual.
Cork is an environmentally friendly material, one hundred percent natural, recyclable and biodegradable.

A aparência e textura das folhas do Sobreiro, árvore da qual é feita a cortiça, matéria-prima para a rolha, inspirou a forma do porta-vinho Súber.

A união da cortiça com o alumínio fundido traz não apenas beleza, mas também o simbolismo do ritual do vinho.
Cortiça é um material natural, reciclável e biodegradável.
