Based in Vienna, artist duo mischer’traxler developed Small Discoveries as a tribute to Perrier Jouët’s Art Nouveau heritage and strong connection with nature.
The collection includes a collectible limited-edition bottle with a deluxe case designed specially for Perrier-Jouët, featuring flowers opening and butterflies taking flight.
The two artist met whilst studying at Kingston University London and have since won several awards including the Wu Guanzhong Art & Science Innovation Award 2012, the Austrian Experimental Design Award 2009, and an honorary mention at Prix ArsElectronica 2009.
“Nature provides a constant spectacle of miniature surprises and exquisite visions, revealing the beauty of a flower as it opens or a butterfly taking flight. In so doing, it establishes a lively, deferential dialogue with mankind.” – Katharina Mischer and Thomas Traxler
Tord Boontje aimed to reinvent the tasting ritual to create a decidedly Perrier-Jouët moment with his hand-worked metal branches, individually soldered leaves lacquered in white. The champagne is suspended in mid-air in order to maintain a cool temperature while allowing them to bath in the gold branches.
"My ideas come to me while strolling in the forest and observing the way light and nature interact" explains the designer, who refuses to link modernism and minimalism.
Boontje, an artist born in 1968 in the Netherlands, studied industrial design at the Design Academy in Eindhoventhen at the Royal College of Art in London, before founding his own design studio in 1996 in London.
He draws inspiration from nature and incessantly explores the relationship between nature and technology: making for a perfect pair with Perrier-Jouët.
The Perrier-Jouët Collection by Claire Coles contains two limited editions of cocktail bags for the Grand Brut and Blason Rosé cuvées. A cooler bag of decorated satin, which is perfect for carrying your bottle of champagne and keeping it chilled until the moment of tasting. The collection also includes a new Grand Brut presentation box, a Deluxe Belle Epoque edition with its House cuvée and two flutes with iconic anemones.
Inspired by nature, Claire Coles offers her own interpretation of Art Nouveau, with her works including with a hint of Haute Couture design. The House collaborated with Claire Coles to create a collection for each of its wines: a delicate floral theme for the Belle Epoque cuvée, a "House style" theme for the Grand Brut and "extravagant femininity" for Blason Rosé.
Coles graduated from Middlesex University in 2003. She has designed for Penguin Publishing and the West London Showroom. All her creations are hand-made in her workshop.
Since 1902 when glassworker and a key figure of the Art Nouveau movement, Émile Gallé, created a swirling portrayal of white Japanese anemones for Perrier-Jouët, the brand has remained true to its aesthetic heritage.
Perrier-Jouët and Christofle have now joined together to continue this tradition, and create a unique and elaborate collection.
Just like Perrier-Jouët, the silverworkers of Christofle uphold ancestral craft techniques and produce their pieces entirely by hand. Two of his craftsmen have won the Meilleurs Ouvriers de France award, and now the two Houses have combined their artistic talents to create this iconic collection.
This Rosé blend is paired with a collectible limited-edition bottle designed by Vik Muniz. Connected through a shared passion for Art Nouveau, Muniz and Perrier-Jouët are the perfect combination to present Perrier-Jouët Belle Époque Rosé.
Crafted on a gold-plated mounting, Muniz created a unique design featuring a hummingbird, a flowering setting, and the beauty of everyday life solely for Perrier-Jouët Belle Époque Rosé. The design creates an elegant illusion of a hummingbird gathering pollen from the anemone.
Muniz was born in 1961 in São Paulo, Brazil, and now lives and works in New York City and Rio de Janeiro. He specializes in visual puns with short-lived recreations of old masters and instantly recognizable media images.
“Much as Perrier-Jouët has long embraced Art Nouveau’s love of nature and enchantment, I took the idea of captivation in a natural setting as the inspiration for this motif” -Vik Muniz
