On 23-25 September, L’Eden by Perrier-Jouët invites you to pop in and enjoy a glass of Perrier-Jouët champagne in the lounge designed by Noe Duchaufour Lawrance. Additionally workshops, masterclasses and tours of the Bioresponsive Garden will take place within the scope of London Design Festival 2016.
Spanning the duration of the festival, L’Eden by Perrier-Jouët are celebrating the creative effervescence of one of the biggest cultural weeks in London with an installation from leading Parisian designer Noé Duchafour-Lawrance and the world’s first bio-responsive garden by Bompas & Parr.
Taking over the first floor, Noé Duchafour-Lawrance has curated an interactive installation which links nature to the city, paying homage to the Art Nouveau emblem that has graced every bottle of Perrier-Jouët Belle Epoque designed by artist and glass maker Emile Gallé in 1902.
Dramatising the approach in which champagne is served and taking inspiration from nature, the installation includes a vertical system of 3D-printed elements suspended from the ceiling on a network of brass tubes which grow down from the ceiling, like branches from a pergola. At the end of each vine a champagne glass hangs upside down by its stem, ready to be filled with Perrier-Jouët.
“I want the process of taking a glass to feel playful and very instinctive,” says Duchaufour Lawrance, creating a champagne ritual, dramatising the way that champagne is served within the space, “Like when you see a beautiful apple in a tree and you want to pick it.”
In the basement lives the world’s first bio-responsive garden, an installation filled with plants that mimic the movements of explorers amongst them. L'Eden by Perrier-Jouët is named after the exclusive Eden cellar in Epernay, the home town of Champagne Perrier-Jouët where it’s rarest and most prestigious Champagnes are kept.
