Tonnellerie Chassin Père & Fils / Webdesign
This cleanly-styled, airy website, contrasts with those of many competitors, which usually feature dark backgrounds.
The wood shavings in the background – constituting an eye-catching symbol of the cooper’s craft – appear in endless forms. A slide-show presents photographs of the daily work carried out in the cooperage, as well as pictures of Bourgogne, where the firm is located and which obviously adds considerable value to the company that produces barriques for the wine industry, mainly in this very same area. The cooperage draws on its significant expertise in the woods produced in the region, starting from the selection of the same and continuing throughout the various work phases.
The wooden staves are bent through toasting, which allows the wood to be treated. The burning fire in the flash film of the company logo testifies to the importance of fire in the cooper’s work and symbolises this particular process. The client is able to update the site’s news section personally, using a straightforward content management system.
