Brazilian, Spain-based designer Tati Guimarães takes the pragmatic route, repurposing wine bottles into stylish, multifunctional furniture that wouldn't look out of place in a fancy living room or gathering. © Tati Guimarães We've seen the designer recycle wine corks too; here, Divinus is Guimarães' simple but clever collection of versatile pieces made out of wood and reused wine bottles. Guimarães' design studio, Ciclus, attempts to marry eco-friendly materials with a sense of elegance and depth, says Guimarães: When designing, I go beyond functionality, beauty and sustainability. I seek to design versatile objects which convey a message, which interact with people, move them and invite them to reflect. © Tati Guimarães © Tati Guimarães © Tati Guimarães The bottles really do take on multiple roles here: they are supports, of course, but they can also hold objects like flowers and foods, making these pieces perfect for an elegant shindig or even a wedding. © Tati Guimarães The design's flexibility is emphasized by the possibility of user customization: These tables can be covered with a glass top, making them into yet another multifunctional object, or removed completely to serve as trays. © Tati Guimarães © Tati Guimarães © Tati Guimarães It's a lovely, unique design that re-imagines simple elements into something refined, tasteful and even affordable (the Ciclus shop begins pricing for the collection at €59.00 or USD $65).
