The project is a complete alcohol distillery set in the form of a mobile table. The construction is made of plywood and acid‑proof steel. A heating mantle has been used in the project to enable safe and effective heating of the flask. There is also a switch‑mode power supply to precisely control the temperature. The additional kit and other elements are made of high‑quality Italian leather and felt. The designer has been inspired be the phenomena of regionality, slow food, homemade products, and alcohol as a pretext for feasting. The project’s goal is also to draw attention to the legislative aspect of the production of homemade alcohol (Polish bimber). It tries to respond to the need for homemade production of alcoholic beverages and respecting tradition, and at the same time, it’s a way to integrate with people and celebrate the drinking of the homemade alcohol.
