Let’s face it – wine racks can be downright ugly. Trust me, I’ve done my fair share of Googling! Most look like they’re relics of the 70s, when wrought iron homewares and shitloads of wood were considered chic! Because I’m setting up a new home in Stockholm, the design capital of the world, this was never going to be an option!
In December, the Wine Wankers released our 2015 list of must have Christmas presents. I must’ve been a good boy, because Santa (ie – my credit card) gifted me my favourite item – the Stact Wine Wall! No longer would my wine samples clog up the hallway at home.
Like all great ideas these days, Stact was born from crowdfunding. When it was launched, the Canadian-designed system was an instant hit, reaching its initial Kickstarter goal in just 40 hours. It was even awarded #1 Kickstarter design product by Huffington Post’s StyleList.
Stact is modular, so you can mix and match colours as you desire, and the tiles can be shaped to suit the space you live in. There’s nine different wood veneer and lacquer finishes to choose from, and I’m told the metal prongs are made from aircraft-grade anodised aluminium… whatever that means! It’s easy to install, but I as didn’t want to take any risks, I called in the handymen to help me set it up properly and efficiently. My display took one hour to install between three people. Check out the time-lapsed video I took on my iPhone 6.
