Perrier-Jouët Lounge Includes Grape Skin 3D-Printed Champagne Bowl

The installation is a digital-age take on Art Nouveau

Maison Perrier-Jouët‘s annual installation at Design Miami/ often pushes the boundaries of materials and design. In past years they’ve presented motion-sensing plants, 3D drawings in water and a virtual iceberg. For 2016, San Francisco-based designer Andrew Kudless was commissioned to design a lounge in the naturalistic spirit of Art Nouveau but using today’s digital design and fabrication tools.

“I was interested in the way that strands, fibers, branches and vines were applied across every aspect of Art Nouveau, from paintings to architecture. The curving strand motif evokes nature and movement over time. I wanted to look at four of Perrier-Jouët’s emblematic materials—wood, chalk, glass and grapes—and see how I could create strands out of each one.”

Surrounding the installation were a series of three 8-foot tall wood veneer screens that resembled tree trunks or vines. These elements were laser-cut flat and formed into shape.

Inside, a series of benches offer visitors a place to relax. These are made from molded concrete bases tinted to resemble the color of the chalk material found in the Maison Perrier-Jouët wine cellars and in the surrounding vineyard soil. The tops are CNC milled oak, a nod to the same wood used in grape presses.

The focal point of the space is an illuminated 3D-printed crystalline pedestal on top of which sits a one of a kind champagne ice bucket. The bowl was 3D-printed with a composite material made of ground Chardonnay grape skins. Kudless modeled the bowl to represent the wrinkled skin of a dried grape.

“The grapes were dried in order to be ground up, and the ice bucket reproduces the texture of a grape as it dries.”

The installation, aptly called Eden, aimed to reflect Perrier-Jouët love and respect for nature and offer visitors a new perspective on the creation of champagne.
