Perrier-Jouët is proud to unveil Lost Time by Glithero for Perrier-Jouët, a newly commissioned installation and exhibition space by London-based designers Glithero, at Design Miami/ 2012
Lost Time by Glithero for Perrier-Jouët is made with weighted, beaded strings that hang to form curves. The beads can be considered to reflect the dewdrops found in the cellars of the House in Epernay. The pool of water below is inspired by the double meaning of reflection and the optical effect of light and contrast encountered in the Perrier-Jouët cellars.
Describing their work, Sarah Van Gameren from Glithero explains: "In response to the Art Nouveau style we have shifted the emphasis from the figurative representation of Nature, to the capturing of a pure experience of Nature".
Following Miami, Glithero's work will become part of the permanent collection of contemporary and historic Art Nouveau-inspired pieces in the Maison Belle Epoque, which houses no fewer than 200 original works by some of the greatest Art Nouveau masters.
