Studio Becker’s Hallway wine cellar

Renowned for their exquisite kitchens and wardrobes, the Product Development Team at Studio Becker has just introduced another innovative product in the Ultimate Home Collection, The Studio Becker Wine Cellar.

This picture below shows an example of how a hallway closet can be converted into a temperature controlled, 720-bottle wine cellar for storing and displaying fine wine collections.

Now you don’t have to hide your elite wine collection in a cellar thanks to the design experts at Studio Becker who have created a storage unit through which you can easily access and view your collection. What’s more the storage unit it a controlled and safe environment for keeping wine.

A simple yet sophisticated system The Studio Becker Wine Cellar has its own design-patented shelving. In this model (pictured) red wines are stored at the back of the cellar in order to keep movement of the bottles to a minimum, and  the white wines are stored in front on the sliding tracks.

The key element of this system is that it allows for a case of 12 bottles to be displayed, one of which lies horizontally, clearly displaying the label.

Studio Becker’s product development team is constantly working on the creation of distinctive design elements that will provide an exclusive experience for your clients.  Recently the company announced that they were partnering with the renowned wine glass company, Riedel. Reidel will supply Studio Becker with all of their glassware, allowing them to further expand their in-drawer cassette systems.  In collaboration with Riedel, Studio Becker are developing a cassette system which includes a stem-less programme scheduled to be released mid 2012.

Studio Becker’s exclusive in-drawer Cassette system for glassware, specifically made here for red wine, with felt-lined scoops to gently cradle each glass.

During a recent visit to Australia to launch Riedel’s new ‘Pig Tail decanter’ commissioned by Victor Churchill Butchery in Woolhara, the Riedel team visited Sutdio Becker Sydney where they were welcomed by Managing Director of Studio Becker Australia, Fiona Lochtenberg.

The Riedel team was very impressed with the presentation in Sydney.  Pictured above from left to right: Mr. Mark Baulderstone, Managing Director for Riedel Australia, Fiona Lochtenberg, Managing Director of Studio Becker Australia, Mr. Georg Riedel, 10th generation family member and Director of Riedel and Julie Barba.
