Cristiana Giopato worked for years under Patricia Urquiola; now part of the Milan-based duo Giopato + Coombes, the Italian designer proves she’s inherited Urquiola’s delicate way with porcelain. Her Hula Hoop for Industreal is a tower of sixteen lopsided discs that can be stacked partly to form a wine chiller and fully to hide the empty bottle, turning the whole thing into a twisting, modular vase; $615. www.industreal.it
