French designer Christophe Pillet has designed a contemporary set to accompany Remy Martin’s top class cognac Louis XIII. This collaboration is, according to Remy Martin, a way to pay homage to the heritage and artistry of the high-quality cognac.
Pillet is well known as a furniture designer and has worked with Philippe Starck and brands like Zanotta, Cappellini, Tacchini and Pallucco.
The collaboration between Christophe Pillet and Louis XIII is a result of a program initiated by Remy Martin to support visionary artists from the world of art, design, photography and architecture. Earlier collaborations include the artist Louis Bourgeoise and the architect Dror.
Louis XIII is made from 1200 different “eaux de vie” (fermented and distilled grape juice from Grande Champagne region in Cognac) aged anywhere between 40-100 years and perfectly blended that go into making each bottle of Louis XIII.
The Louis XIII you drink now was blended in 1960 with eaux de vie that had already aged for over 40 years before that.
The new tableware collection includes a crystal glass, a silver serving platter, a crystal candleholder and a display case all of which has been designed to complement the iconic Louis XIII Baccarat decanter.
