Vin Vin Vin

VIN VIN VIN! is part wine stand, part wine bar.

Designed to anchor the north forecourt at Briarwood Mall in Ann Arbor, Vin Vin Vin is an offshoot of the House of Pure Vin wine shoppe in Detroit. The design language extends the character of the shop, inverting and rescaling it in the form of a high-quality millwork kiosk.

The materials are durable, and express warmth and smart sophistication, ranging from quartz to industrial plywood, cardboard ‘core’ tubes, powder-coated steel, bronze glass, and cork tile.

A side for education and secure browsing; a side for grab and go; and a side for sitting down for a glass. The forth side abuts a circulation ramp that provides staff access behind the counters, various utilities, and extra storage.
