In the Pines

  • Samantha Brooks

The Dutch designer Piet Hein Eek—known for his sustainable furniture made from reclaimed wood, iron, and steel—has designed a limited-edition box for Ruinart’s Blanc de Blancs. Each signed and numbered box of recycled pine houses a bottle of the Champagne and is priced at $130. Made by hand in Eek’s Geldrop, Holland, workshop, the crates are lightly sanded and thinly lacquered to add texture and visual dimension, making them worth keeping even after the bottles’ corks have been popped.
