Artist Charles Kaisin has designed a sculpture made from 1,724 gilded origami centaurs, in partnership with Rémy Martin.
Step into the central atrium of The Design Museum this June and you’ll be met with an absolutely breathtaking sight… A gloriously gilded art sculpture, the Rémy Martin Centaur mobile is a dazzling homage to French talent and craftsmanship. Designed by Charles Kaisin, this mesmeric masterpiece is made from over a thousand origami centaurs, each one expertly hand-gilded by the talented goldsmiths at Atelier Thiery!
This impressive piece of art is not only a visual representation of Rémy Martin’s iconic centaur in its entirety, it is also made of exactly 1,724 gilded centaur pieces – a nod to the year the House of Rémy Martin was founded.
The weightless work of art will be displayed at The Design Museum from June 17 – 28, alongside the Charlotte Perriand: The Modern Life exhibition. French architect and designer, Charlotte Perriand, was one of the giants of 20th century design, a free spirit who championed good design for all. Through this exhibition visitors can follow Perriand’s creative process, while also discovering more about her life as a fiercely independent woman – pioneer, sportswoman and global traveller – who helped define the modern interior.
The luxurious French cognac, Rémy Martin, has always been an advocate of craftsmanship, passion and excellence and supports Charlotte Perriand: The Modern Life as the exhibition’s ‘Official Drinks Partner’. They also celebrate the alliance of craftsmanship and creativity through teamwork and collaboration with their glittering Rémy Martin Centaur sculpture. Visit The Design Museum before June 28 to catch it in all its glory!
In honour of this unique collaboration, Rémy Martin have also released a beautiful limited-edition bottle of Rémy Martin XO, designed by Atelier Thiery. Featuring an opulent 18-carat gold leaf, this lavish bottle is enclosed in a gilded case inspired by the ancient French technique of ‘Verre Eglomisé’ (the application of design and gilding onto glass to produce a mirror finish).
This one-of-a-kind bottle pays tribute to the true richness of up to 400 eaux-de-vie that is expressed in Rémy Martin XO, and is the perfect way to treat yourself or a loved one this June. The exclusive bottle is available to purchase from Selfridges now, just in time for Father’s Day.
