Uncommon Goods Prefers Wine Over War

Using vintage ammunitions boxes from the 1960’s and 70’s, French-Canadian utilitarian artists Anne Lapierre and Bruno Chouinard offer their collection of “boîtes de la paix” (French for “peace boxes”) by recycling military objects into what they call “objects of hope.”  In this particular piece, up to seven wine bottles are displayed at a 90-degree angle, allowing for proper storage by keeping the corks wet and ready for a clean pour.  Made in Montreal, the wooden cases stand 37” tall, run 12” wide and 7.5” deep and are available alongside other creatively-sourced and repurposed bar solutions from Uncommon Goods.  $325
