There are four basic shapes for all wine bottles: Bordeaux (vernaccia, Salento rosé, Chateau d'Yquem...), Burgundy (Chablis, Montrachet, Cortese dei Gavi...), Rhine (Tocai, Riesling, Gewuertzstraminer, Johannisberg...) and Champagne. To contain and cool these different shapes up to the neck, Gozzis research came up with two different Coolers, which both demonstrate his very close attention to practical use. The body is of different thicknesses: thicker at the bottom and on the edge in order to avoid dents. The handles have been studied (together with the edges, which are fully lined) to ensure a perfect grip with a single hand; it holds two bottles; its depth means the bottles can be immersed right up to the neck; lastly, they can be stacked. This Cooler is suitable for two Bordeaux or two Burgundy or two Champagne bottles, while the 5052/RM can contain two Rhine-wine bottles or one Magnum.

- Ettore Sottsass , 1979
Ettore Sottsass was a grandee of late 20th century Italian design. Best known as the founder of the early 1980s Memphis collective, he also designed iconic electronic products for Olivetti, as well as beautiful glass and ceramics. Revered in Italy as a doyen of late 20th century design, Ettore Sottsass is also cited as a role model by young foreign designers, such as Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec, for the breadth - as well as the quality - of his work.
