The first walk-in climate wine cabinet with liquid crystal glazing (PDLC) protects the wine from light irradiation and automatically turns transparent when entered. The glass shelves make the wine bottles seem to float and also support the structure of the »EmotionCube®«. First climate wine cabinet with PDLC glazing and automatic doors as a serial product. First climate wine cabinet with a climate-regulating tuff stone floor (wine cellar effect). Available with two climate zones (white-red wine).

Statement of the jury

The »EmotionCube®Wine« from studiooberhauser is a wine safe with a futuristic appearance, which thanks to liquid crystal glazing (PDLC) becomes a fascinating eye catcher in any room. The climate-controlled cube — optionally available with two climate zones (for red and white wine) — is safe to walk on and when stepped on automatically becomes transparent thanks to the sliding door. Coupled with the likewise transparent shelves, the bottles appear to be floating in the room. Aside from this, the special glazing protects the wine stored inside from light. The »EmotionCube®« is the first ever wine cabinet to include a moisture-regulating tuff stone flooring, thereby simulating the conditions of a conventional wine cellar. An innovative, stylish retail object, which will never lose its decorative appeal regardless of the space that it is placed in.
