Kosuga Pentagon Wine Cooler
A pentagon shaped wine cooler made to hold just one bottle at a time. Due to bamboo's low thermal conductivity, bamboo naturally stays cool and is an ideal material for keeping objects chilled regardless of the temperature outside. The beautifully stacked and striped laminated bamboo with contrasting dark teak joinery in its striking geometric shape makes this wine cooler a stand out in almost any interior - modern to traditional.

Originating in Kyoto, Kohchosai Kosuga is a fifth-generation atelier that combines traditional bamboo shaping techniques and contemporary design concepts. The bamboo used in Kohchosai Kosuga products are of the Madake and Mousouchiku varieties. Carefully crafted by skilled hands using bamboo sourced from the mountains of Hyogo, Nara and Kyoto known for their incredibly strong and durable bamboo reeds. No preservatives or chemicals are used in the harvesting or making of these pieces and the procuring and drying of each bamboo piece is a long process. The bamboo is harvested between the cold winter months of November to February. When it gets warmer in March, the oil from the bamboo is removed through steaming in a special kiln. After that, it is hung to dry in the sun for over one month.
