“I once was a (wine) barrel”
The vision behind my design was to give wine enthusiasts, who have a flair for the extreme, a new way to get around the city.
This skateboard was designed using an old wine barrel donated by the Golan Heights winery for a collaboration project with the Holon Institute of Technology where I study Industrial design.
The design uses the deep burgundy coloring resulting from the adsorption of wine to the barrel’s inner surface in order to make a new aesthetics.
A pattern was created on the skateboard deck using an innovative technology that removes the wine staining at the required areas.
Working with professional skateboarders, I created a skateboard that not only kept true to the shape and feel of the wine barrel but is also functional as a fun means of transportation.
