New cocktail cabinets are causing quite a stir, and Berlin-based Lukas Wegwerth lets their contents speak for themselves. For the Blankenau (price on request), he perches a simple glass cuboid on an organic, willow-tree base that has a rasped, burnt and shellac finish. “It’s both functional and sculptural,” says Sam Pratt, co-director of Gallery Fumi, which represents Wegwerth. “Wegwerth has deliberately left each piece as a clean, empty box so clients can request bespoke shelving.” Totally transparent, it’s perfect for displaying shimmering crystal glassware and bottles of luxurious liqueurs, and, just like a newly invented cocktail, it typifies the one-of-a-kind pieces that make home entertaining considerably more refreshing these days.
