Arthur Umanoff (1923–1985) was an American-born industrial designer, noted for his contribution to the American midcentury modern movement. Upon graduating from New York’s prestigious Pratt Institute and the American School of Design in the beginning of the 1950s, Umanoff began collaborating with Post Modern Ltd, a New York design company that produced and sold modernist wrought iron and wood designs. Throughout the 1960s, he worked closely with the furniture manufacturer Shaver Howard, who put many of his furniture designs into production. He also designed clocks for Howard Miller. Arthur Umanoff believed that design should not only be beautifully constructed and functional, but that it should also be attainable. Using natural materials and new methods to reimagine traditional furniture pieces, he created versatile designs for the home that were celebrated for their quality as for their simplified, functional forms and staying power. Reflecting warmth and practicality, his designs were often imagined in wrought iron, rattan, walnut and birch, imbued with functional details yet retaining a sense of natural elegance thanks to their slender, tapered lines.

Description

Arthur Umanoff’s mid-century modern wine rack combines black powder coated steel with leather for an industrial look. Holding 8 bottles, the reissued design is ideal for wine cellars or as a standalone rack in a kitchen or dining room for keeping bottles within easy reach.
The timeless design doubles as a sculptural feature.

Defined by an elegant contrast between the strict lines of the powder-coated metal frame with the hanging leather straps, the two contrasting materials unite to form a striking structure that can beautifully store and display your wine collection.

The leather straps have been strategically placed on the frame to make sure the bottles gently tilt forwards, settling the wine so it touches the cork; ensuring the most perfect drink.
Holding up to eight bottles of wine, the rack is ideal for placing in a contemporary kitchen or dining room, or for use in a cluster to create a larger rack in a wine cellar.

H:47,5 cm, W:24 cm, D:25 cm

Material: Black Powder Coated Steel, Full Grain Leather and subtle brass detailing.
