andrew kudless sculpts luminous 'strand garden' for perrier-jouët at design miami/

 

at design miami/ 2016, perrier-jouët continues its ongoing creative collaborations through an artistic partnership with san francisco-based designer andrew kudless. ‘strand garden’ melds kudless’ research and development in digital craftsmanship with perrier-jouët’s historic ties to the art nouveau era. the installation comprises three screens of curving, tree trunk-like forms that delineate an intimate central space. each strand is illuminated from within by light that subtly changes in intensity and filters through the semi-translucent panels.

within the inner garden, visitors find a host of kudless’ other design creations that investigate the champagne-making process, as well as the signature materials involved in its making. interlocking benches are treated with robotically-milled oak tops that refer to perrier-jouët’s riddling racks and wine presses. their concrete legs have been treated to mimic the chalk that shelters the maison’s cellars and nourishes its vines. a clear bioplastic glowing table at the center of the space evokes the clarity and vibrant bubbles of perrier-jouët’s wines.

on this table sits ‘marc metamorphosis’, an ice bucket designed by kudless that furthers the installation’s overall relationship to champagne. kudless 3D printed ground chardonnay skins to create the centerpiece, whose rippled petal form aesthetically mimics the wrinkled skin of a raisin. ‘I was interested in the way that strands, fibers, branches and vines were applied across every aspect of art nouveau, from paintings to architecture,’ kudless describes. ‘the curving strand motif evokes nature and movement over time.’
