There’s a Design Project with Milanese Origins becoming viral in this edition of Design Miami. Andrea Mancuso, an Italian designer has teamed up with the historic champagne house Maison Perrier-Jouët and the two Design Forces have created a unique installation for the event. Milan Design Agenda is going to show you the essentials.
The Milanese Designer of Analogia Project has been involved in a project with Maison Perrier-Jouët in which he created a unique collection of six glasses along with a champagne bowl. For the conception of these novelties, the designer used a long lost craft: lost-wax casting. Below are the resulting glasses presented as a couple of colourful results.
The immersive scenography in Metamorphosis is meant to stimulate viewers’ curiosity and intercept the familiar with the unexpected. The main goal of Maison Perrier-Jouët with this project is to expand the dialogue between nature and wine and provide a whole different artistic champagne experience.
For Mancuso himself, each wine has a unique history and personality. It was with this thought in mind that he evoked this line of thinking when conceiving these glasses. More than aromas and flavours, he views champagne and the act of serving it as a catalyst for stories, surprises, and emotions. Despite having a huge background in furniture and lighting design, the Milanese Designer has shown that he knows how to handle other challenges.
In order to create the incredible installation, Maison Perrier-Jouët and Andrea Mancuso were inspired by the expressive formal characteristics of the art nouveau movement. The cavernous installation at Design Miami can be interpreted as an expression of the house’s vineyards, cellars, and the champagnes themselves. The result is a space that unites traditional craftsmanship with modern technology and it’s become one of the most viral showcases of this edition of Design Miami.
