WINE! Artisan Cellars by Asylum, Singapore

March 4th, 2012 by retail design blog

A cellar that’s as much a conversation piece as the wine it stores – 400 bottles of luxury cuvee wines are contained in a 3m x 6m cement block, extruded from the shop into the public space. The focus: the dramatic angular tunnel and its top-rate gems.

The design of Artisan Cellars, a high-end wine retail space specializing in small production vineyards, stands in contrast to other cookie-cutter cellar spaces. Wine-worthy quotes by renowned writers, like Galileo Galilei’s ‘Wine is sunlight, held together by water’ and Norman Douglas’s ‘Wine is a precarious aphrodisiac, and its fumes have blighted many’, are etched into understated whitewashed walls.
