Perrier-Jouët presents Metamorphosis Bar Installation

Maison Perrier-Jouët continues its collaboration with Italian designer Andrea Mancuso, presenting the Metamorphosis bar at Design Miami/ Podium x Shanghai. Mancuso was inspired by a visit to Perrier-Jouët in Epernay, where he was moved by the ethereal atmosphere of the shadowy silence he discovered in the cellars, and the vibrant colours and light of the House’s vineyards. His interpretation of this experience aims to stimulate the curiosity of the viewer and interact with them by intercepting the familiar with the unexpected. The shape of the ceramic pieces in the structure recalls bottles maturing in the cellars, while the palette forms an image of the Perrier-Jouët vineyard during the harvest.

Founded in 1811 in Epernay, Maison Perrier-Jouët is one of France’s most historic champagne houses, but also one of its most distinctive, renowned for its floral and intricate champagnes which reveal the true essence of the Chardonnay grape and an enduring tradition of savoir-faire – an unparalleled expertise of only seven Cellar Masters since its foundation.

A boutique house with a family spirit, Perrier-Jouët has been profoundly influenced by its founders’ love of nature and art – twin inspirations which allow it to create exceptional experiences and moments of wonder that enhance everyday life.

Since its 1902 collaboration with Art Nouveau pioneer Emile Gallé, creator of the anemone design for its Perrier-Jouët Belle Epoque prestige cuvée, Perrier-Jouët has commissioned work from established and emerging artists, including Daniel Arsham, Noé Duchaufour-Lawrance, Miguel Chevalier, Makoto Azuma, Tord Boontje, Studio Glithero and Simon Heijdens, and more recently Vik Muniz, mischer’traxler, Ritsue Mishima, Andrew Kudless and Luftwerk.
