Beautiful news for those who like champagne! Maison Ruinart (LVMH) chose Vik Muniz to design “RUINART LIMITED EDITION JEROBOAM” artwork.
The Brazilian artist spent a season in the Ruinart vineyards, making possible the interpretation and, then, the representation of the terroir and savoir-faire in art form.
While living in the Maison de Champagne properties, Vik Muniz created the Limited Edition Jeroboam by Vik Muniz – a wooden box with an image designed exclusively for Ruinart, with pieces of wood and charcoal, accompanied by the 3-liter Jeroboam Champagne Ruinart Blanc de Blancs bottle.
As a unique design object, the artist’s artwork will be available in France from May 1st. There are only thirty numbered units with Vik Muniz’s signature. Suggested price: upon request.
Each year, Ruinart invites some of the best contemporary artists and designers from around the world to create unique artworks connected to the Maison’s history.
