Champagne brand Piper-Heidsieck recently showcased an elegant artistic installation created in collaboration with Gilles Miller Studio. Inspired by the intricately detailed vine design popularized by the Piper-Heidsieck’s Cuvée Rare bottle, the installation consists of a duo of center pieces displayed at the Rusty Nail VIP area of Mayfair’s Whisky Mist Nightclub. Referencing the rich gold tones of the wines, the installation consists of hundreds of metallic components of varying depths, applied by hand to a ceiling structure, and running length of the room. The finished piece draws on light and texture, inviting the viewer’s eye to a stunning mirror bar complete with etched pattern.
The collaboration and artistic effort succeeds in interpreting the Piper-Heidsieck theme of “Grand and Bold” into the nightclub’s VIP space. The collaboration also marks the arrival of two brand favorites to the club: the Rare 1998 in Magnum (winner of IWC 2013 Sparkling of the Year Trophy) and the Rare 2002 (the winner of IWC 2014 French Sparkling of the Year). The brand’s Rosé Sauvage and Vintage 2006 will also be available at Whisky Mist.
Piper-Heidsieck has stolen our attention in the past with their croc leather clad champagne and their drool worthy gift sets, so we expect nothing but the best from them. And how often do you get to say “I went to a nightclub to check out an art installation?” If you’re in Mayfair, Gilles Miller Studio’s genius is definitely worth your time.
