Totem By Hongchao Wang / Benwu Studio For Remy Martin is Launching in Paris during Maison & Object

When designers at ECAL give a youthful look to a traditional product, a Remixology of the Future Heritage 2 project, a collection of objects to taste cognac differently.

In Europe, consumption of cognac is not up to the patterns observed in Asia and North America. To round out its image, the Maison Rémy Martin has had the happy idea to submit a creative and prospective proposal to the students of the Master of Advanced Studies in Luxury and Craftsmanship at ECAL, the Ecole cantonale d’art de Lausanne (Switzerland). The mission is to rejuvenate the perception and experience of cognac. The ten students were able to visit the cellars of the cognac house to soak in the codes of the precious spirits. The results are ten luxurious and innovative objects entitled Remixology who mix flavorings, natural materials and colors. Featured during the PARIS DESIGN WEEK, from September 5 to 13, at B&B Italia, 35, rue du Bac, 75007 Paris, in a scenography by François Delclaux.
