on the ground floor of the two-story ‘l’eden’ installation, noé duchaufour-lawrance has planted beautifully designed chairs and tables patterned around hanging ornaments. made from intricate 3D-printed elements, the vertical systems fall down from the ceiling using brass tubes, creating imagery of branches growing down from a pergola. these suspending designs immerse visitors into a nature experience that produces an unexpected contrast of calm in an urban environment. furthermore, visitors extract flutes from the ‘tree’, in a new serving and tasting ritual, to be filled with perrier-jouët champagne.

on the lower floor of the 147 wardour street building, the ‘bio-responsive garden’ installation bustles with plants that mimic the movements  of visitors. complete with a secret eden cellar, the creation by bompas & parr with tenhertz and petra storrs, aims to showcase an enchanting vision of eden and nature through modern technology.

 

celebrating both the london fashion week and london design festival, the perrier-jouët ‘l’eden’ installation is open from september 16th to 25th.
