Hi,

I’m interested to know which is the material and the process of Chiringuito Cooler:

thanks!

From Alessi’s site:
“Wine cooler in PELD, blue.”

PELD is Polyethylene-LD

Judging by the (low-res) photo on their site, uniform wall thickness would imply injection molding.

Center post and handle are separatly molded and attached, as implied by this photo:
