Veuve Clicquot is unveiling its latest collaboration with Brazilian designers Fernando & Humberto Campana, as well as with French designer Mathieu Lehanneur, at the 2010 Milan Furniture Fair this week.
Over the years, Veuve Clicquot has collaborated with some of the biggest names in design, like Andree Putman, Karim Rashid, Pablo Reinoso, Tom Dixon, 5.5 Designers and Front Design.
This year, as part of the renovation of its town house in Reims, Veuve Clicquot has commissioned works by the Campana Brothers and Mathieu Lehanneur to decorate the Hotel du Marc residence and delight visitors.
These imaginative projects correspond to the hotel’s reputation for hospitality, aesthetics and pleasure, all in the spirit of the Champagne tradition.
The Tasting Gloriette by Fernando & Humberto Campana
The Tasting Gloriette by Fernando & Humberto Campana is a contemporary version of a gloriette for the residence’s garden, which will be dedicated to outdoor tastings and will stand in the HÃ´tel du Marc 19th century garden
Once Upon a Dream by Mathieu Lehanneur
This installation by Mathieu Lehanneur has been designed to help people rapidly recuperate and adapt to their new surroundings, based on tested psychological studies used in sleep treatment clinics to help cure chronic insomnia.
The capsule installation will allow Hotel du Marc guests to recover as quickly as possible from jetlag, in an extraordinary space—a sleep unit that is a hybrid between fairy tale and home cinema.
This is a nod to the history of the Veuve Clicquot House as Barbe-Nicole Clicquot-Ponsardin was a notorious insomniac.
The two latest creations are displayed at the Milan Furniture Fair this week at the Superstudio Piu – Via Tortona 27, Milano.
