Perrier-Jouët will debut a new commission by Glithero at Design Miami/ 2012
Perrier-Jouët announces it has commissioned London-based designers Glithero to create an installation and exhibition space to
be unveiled at Design Miami/ 2012 this December. As part of its partnership with Design Miami/, Perrier-Jouët invited Glithero to create a new design in honour of the House’s Art Nouveau heritage. The result will be a unique piece presented in an experiential environment inspired by the curvilinear forms and natural motifs of Art Nouveau, a prominent theme at this year’s Design Miami/ fair.
Earlier this year, Tim Simpson and Sarah van Gameren of Glithero visited the exclusive Maison Belle Epoque, the historic Perrier-Jouët house, in Epernay France which houses no fewer than 200 original works by some of the greatest Art Nouveau masters. It was there that the design duo sought inspiration for a new piece which will debut in Miami.
This marks the first commissioned piece by Perrier-Jouët as part of its ongoing partnership with Design Miami/. In addition to the commissioned work, Perrier-Jouët will be the official champagne sponsor of Design Miami/ serving its exclusive prestige Belle Epoque cuvee champagne within the Design Miami/ Collectors Lounge and select VIP events during the week of the fair.
Following Miami, Glithero’s work will become part of the permanent collection of contemporary and historic Art Nouveau inspired pieces in the Maison Belle Epoque. Since its very first artistic collaboration in 1902 with renowned French Art Nouveau artist Emile Gallé, who created the anemone design of its iconic Belle Époque cuvée, the house has continued to commission a roster of established and emerging designers and artists including Daniel Arsham, Noé Duchaufour Lawrance and most recently Makoto Azuma.
