Designer Joe Doucet was commissioned by Wallpaper* to create an object for their annual Handmade Exhibit and wanting to go beyond making just an object, he sought to create a ritual. With that in mind, Doucet designed a series of Wine Chillers that were expertly made by Neal Feay Studio in Santa Barbara.
