The Bicycle Wine Rack was our best-seller at the Melbourne Design Market last Sunday. The leather and brass contraption drew many admiring glances and our market stock was sold out by lunch time (don’t worry, we have more available online).
For those of you who’ve bought the Bicycle Wine Rack or have it on your wish list, here’s a handy installation video.
Some more information on the Bicycle Wine Rack:
- Fit The strap is designed to be snug so that when it stretches, it will be the right size and not too loose. The first couple times you put a wine bottle in it it will feel a little snug and the first couple of times you connect and disconnect it from the metal post it will feel a little snug.
- Leather Don’t be afraid to rub down the rack with olive oil once a year to keep the leather slightly moist. The material is a vegetable tanned leather that will change in colour and feel depending on how often you use it. It will darken with sunlight significantly.
- Clamp The clamping system is meant to be snug enough to keep the leather from moving around. It’s not invisible so don’t tighten the clamp harder than you need to.
