About this project
Rated #1 Kickstarter design product, on Huffington Post's StyleList.
STACT makes Uncrate's 'Most Wanted' list.
What they're saying.
Changing the way we look at wine.
In a world of boring, traditional, and downright tacky wine racks, STACT sets a new standard for simplicity, usability, and style. Brought to life by 2012 ICFF award-winning designer Eric Pfeiffer, it’s a revolution in modularity and versatility.
Enjoying and celebrating your collection means that the focus belongs to the bottle. Traditional wine racks and storage solutions shift that focus away to the rack itself. With STACT, the rack is beautiful and subtle, giving the stage to your collection as it grows. Each bottle sits comfortably in its own space, as if suspended in mid-air. Cradled by two precision-machined extrusions, it’s secure in a place of prominence.
Hear it from the designer:
Eric Pfeiffer: “We want people to fall in love with these things. At the core of what we want to do is create products that people will keep forever.”
STACT fits any space or décor, giving you an infinite number of configurations and color combinations. There’s beauty in the flexibilty of STACT; mount a single panel, create your own custom pattern and plan, or grow your system as your collection evolves over time.
Modern. Minimalist. Modular.
With a modern aesthetic in mind, STACT is crafted from high quality aircraft-grade aluminum and premium wood veneers, with a high-end appeal previously found only in modern wine cellars, avant-garde restaurants, and wine bars. The patent-pending versatile and space efficient modular design is infinitely expandable and customizable, a cinch to assemble, and seamlessly integrates into any space or décor.
In the kitchen, in the dining room, or as the heart of your cellar, you can build STACT to fit your space.
Available in six stunning finishes:
Mix & match to make your own unique creation!
STACT offers more bottle capacity per square foot than traditional wine racks. By adding and arranging kits horizontally, even more bottles can be stored:
There are three components to the STACT system:
- the panel, available in six stunning finishes
- the precision-machined aluminum bottle supports
- the tailored wall brackets, available three sizes
Each panel is crafted to exacting specifications and pre-installed with anchors for a secure mount to the wall via the tailored F-brackets. Mix and match six beautiful finishes including walnut, white oak, zebrano, piano black, pure white, and electric orange.
Precision-machined Aluminum Bottle Supports
Comprised of aircraft-grade extruded aluminum, each individual support unit provides space for up to three bottles on a single panel, offering even more storage as your STACT system grows. Each support is anodized for a clean, elegant finish.
Designed to secure STACT to a wall surface, the aircraft grade extruded aluminum F-brackets are available in three sizes, accommodating one, two, or three panels. With a matching anodized finish, they’re the subtle highlight that appears between each panel, fitting comfortably side-by-side. Measuring and installing the brackets is easy, offering maximum stability with minimum labour.
Easy to install:
The small number of components allows for easy assembly in just four steps, with drilling and measuring kept to a minimum. STACT mounts to any dry-wall surface, with the included hardware.
Conservation for lower cost:
STACT components are packed flat, ready to assemble, keeping freight costs at a minimum.

We've finalized the design, completed and tested pre-production prototypes (pictured below). With the support of Eric Pfeiffer of Pfeiffer Lab, there comes a proven track record of bringing hundreds of elegant and well-designed consumer products to market, with vast experience in product development, and a deep network of manufacturers.
Plans have been established with our production partners in China, with facilities that have capacity to ramp up production in excess of ten times the volume we anticipate from Kickstarter; in the event that the product is more popular than that we have a secondary facility online.
We are excited and ready to make STACT a reality. With your help, we can finance the tooling, first production run, and packaging. In return, you can be the first to pre-order STACT, while taking advantage of exclusive Kickstarter savings off our retail price.
We're a team that knows how to execute, and are ready to roll, we just need your backing. Here's our plan:
Just add up the total of the pledges you want and enter that as the pledge amount. We will send out an email form when the funding closes to confirm everything.
Yes, STACT has been designed and tested to accommodate all styles of standard sized (750ml) wine bottles, including pinot, bordeaux, riesling, champagne. Any cylindrical bottles ranging from 2 7/8" to 3 1/2" will fit comfortably, making STACT an ideal home for port, large-format beers, and even many popular spirits!
When I kick in it’s not asking me which color I want. How can I tell you what my color preferences are?
After the Kickstarter we’ll send a survey to every backer. You’ll then have the chance to tell us which color you’d like! If you’re ordering more than one STACT unit, you’ll be able to specify the color for each.
We hear you! Here’s the deal: We will be shipping our units from a US-based facility. There are additional costs on our end, but we’ve found this to be the most cost-effective approach. We'll be absorbing a large portion of the shipping costs to Canada, getting it down to just $15. Hopefully you understand and can bear with us on this!
Hit the blue “Manage My Account” button and you can change it. Your card isn’t charged until the final day of funding anyways.
STACT is designed for easy and flexible installation. With the included hardware, STACT mounts securely to *any* dry-wall surface right out of the box in just a few easy steps. So you won't need to mount to studs.
Kickstarter represents a unique opportunity for us to share very special pricing to you, our backers. After this campaign, our price will be set at $129.99 (and $149.99 for Zebrano) and offered at leading design retailers this holiday season. We will be unable to offer a discount like this again, as it would set a precedent in the market and be unprofitable for our retail partners. By getting in at this early stage we are able to reward you for your valued support as you help Kickstart our business. Win-Win!
