Noren wine cabinets are inspired by the door curtains of Japanese stores. The term "Noren?curtain)" was introduced from China in the early days of Muromachi, Japan, and is a sign of opening and closing of the store. In the past, many izakaya stores used ropes to hanging curtains at the entrance. Therefore, izakayas also have the nickname "Rope Noren". This style has continued to the present. It can be seen that the Noren is used as a sign to distinguish the izakaya from the sun and the wind. Classification has gradually evolved into one of the symbols of Eastern culture.
The exterior of the wine cabinet has a custom-made artistic fabric symbolizing "Noren", which not only decorates the particularity of the wine cabinet, but also has the pun meaning of resisting wind, sun and rain. The whole wine cabinet is composed of glass, metal and a dark red oil painted board. The combination of glass and oil painted board hopes that the connection between the user and the wine cabinet can be interesting and poetic.
The internal areas of the wine cabinet are classified in an orderly manner, which can display wine, storage and store utensils, etc.
