Pipo refers to the traditional wood barrel used for the transport andstorage of wine. The mobility of the product is associated to the commercial expansion of the wine and it is as if each person carried this cultural history when carrying Pipo.
This piece was produced in agglomerated black cork cluster, referring to the tone of aged casks. This material also makes it lightweight and slip resistant. The rope emphasizes the old look, making it most fun and adaptable to the environments.
