    WINECHILLERS FOR WALLPAPER*
    When commissioned by Wallpaper*
    Magazine for its annual Handmade
    Exhibit, design polymath Joe Doucet
    wanted to create more than an object, he
    sought to create a ritual. The result is a
    series of wine chillers, exquisitely crafted
    by Neal Feay Studio in Santa Barbra,
    California. A chilled bottle of wine
    is placed inside the containers, which
    prevent the cold from being lost by
    convection, conduction and radiation.
    The textures engraved in varying depths
    which wrap around the chillers are
    inspired by the wind patterns of cold
    fronts as they move around the globe.
