Alessi Noè Ice Tub
Giulio Iacchetti is the designer of a unique collection of objects that offer an original take on several classic wine-related products. The “Noè” series is made up of a Drop ring, a Champagne bottle opener, a Wine bottle stopper, a Bottle holder and a Sommelier corkscrew.
The collection is further enhanced with this Ice tub, an essential wine serving accessory. Distinctive for its ample proportions, the “Noè” Ice tub is inspired by the vasque of the French wine tradition.
Thanks to its size and the series of compartments dotted along its upper edge, it can hold up to five bottles of wine or two magnums.
