Champagne and art often go hand in hand and plenty of Champagne houses have collaborated with artists and designers to create interesting and often abstract installations and objects. As Maison Perrier-Jouët announce its latest collaboration, here's a selection of the most famous.
Maison Perrier-Jouët has announced its newest installation in London, Fleurs des Rêves, an ultra-exotic flower shop in collaboration with Bompas & Parr. The shop will be full of colour changing flowers, where customers will be able to make their own bouquets.
Perrier-Jouët’s previous London installation was the Curiosity Cloud, a collaboration with Austrian design pair mischer’traxler for London Design Week 2015. The installation, with cues from the Art Nouveau movement, featured 250 mouth-blown glass ‘bubbles, each with a tiny foil, lazercut insect fluttering around inside. The installation is now in Champagne.

Perrier-Jouët and Ritsue Mishima
Perrier-Jouët teamed up with Japanese artist Ritsue Mishima for Miami Design Week 2015. Her Japanese-influenced aesthetic is married with the Venetian glass making tradition to create All’ombra della luce (in the shadow of the light). The installation evokes light and shadow: the light representing the vineyards and the moving seasons with the shadows symbolising the half-light of the cellars where the Champagne is made.
