Re-Use, Re-duce, Re-cycle: Re-Wine Wine Case/Lamp/Building Block

From the creative minds at MINIWIZ, the Taipei-based company behind the innovative green building product known as Polli-Bricks, a translucent architectural cladding made from recycled PET bottles, comes a new eco-friendly product—on a much smaller scale. Re-Wine is a wine case, lamp, and building module made of POLLIBER™, a combination of rice farming by-products and post-consumer thermoplastics. There’s no need to stop enjoying the finer things in life. MINIWIZ believes you can be a smart consumer: “Enjoy your wine! Save the Planet! Get Trashy Creative!”

A creative wine case that’s perfect for gifting a good bottle of red or white, Re-Wine reduces waste that would otherwise end up in landfills with its 100% recycled material. The revolutionary trademarked POLLIBER combines polypropylene with reprocessed rice husks to produce a durable, architectural-grade material that’s also “manufactured at an unbeatable minimum of CO2 emissions.” Re-Wine lets you carry your wine safely, since the POLLIBER casing keeps bottles from breaking or spilling.

But the valuable life of Re-Wine doesn’t end there. Once you’ve enjoyed your bottle of Malbec or Pinot Grigio, you can convert Re-Wine into a clever desk lamp or standalone chandelier. A perfect conversation piece—especially for wine cellars, restaurants, kitchens, and dining nooks—the Re-Wine light gives a good bottle a productive afterlife.

But wait, there’s more! Re-Wine gives you yet another useful application as an innovative building block, “the adult version of LEGO®.” The wine cases interlock with one another, so you can create a custom wall or piece of furniture. Already honored with a CES 2012 Innovation Design and Engineering Award, Re-Wine will make you re-examine the valuable life of a good bottle of wine. Like a cat with nine lives, the Re-Wine case keeps re-incarnating.
