The wine cooler B.Toni combines two different concrete mixtures. They can be poured consecutively and still coalesce by means of a chemical reaction to form a single object. The ability to produce precise edges and detailed shapes allows for the creation of many different patterns. The edges do not blur and the interfaces remain distinct. While one of the cincrete mixtures is impermeable to water, the other absorbs water.
When dry, both mixtures look the equal. Once the wine cooler is filled with water, the absorbent concrete turns darker. The other one retains its color, making the pattern visible. The base of the jar is made of the imperable concrete mix so that there is no need for a coaster and the table stays dry. B.Toni is just as easy to use as a clay wine cooler: fill the wine cooler with water and wait until the concrete is saturated. Then, tip out the surplus water and put the wine bottle inside. The wine is chilled by means of evaporation. When the pattern has disappeared, the concrete jar has dried out and needs a water refill. Enjoy your evening with a glass of chilled wine!
