Tasting Lab

Meeting like-minded collaboration partners engenders a dialogue in which obscured details and new possibilities come to light and unique products may emerge. In collaboration with Studio Pneuma, Design Studies have created Empirical Spirits Tasting Lab where the remarkable and experimental tasting enterprise is able to present their carefully processed products for visitors. 

In collaboration with Studio Pneuma, Design Studies designed a solid refectory table, from a distance monumental and brutal, but a closer look will reveal details attesting to very different and sensitive aspects of the wood. In addition to this, Design Studies created a shelving system, indexing the history of Empirical Spirits, the journey undertaken by them, and the processes they have undergone.
