Rémy Martin: The Centaur
In support of Charlotte Perriand: The Modern Life, French cognac brand Rémy Martin pay homage to French excellence and refined craftmanship with the Rémy Martin Mobile Sculpture, designed by artist and designer Charles Kaisin in collaboration with Atelier Thiery.
With a constant focus on craftsmanship and design, Rémy Martin has teamed up with designer Charles Kaisin to create a mesmeric and weightless work of art made out of 1724 gilded pieces to represent Rémy Martin’s iconic centaur and year of foundation.
The work brings together the talents and expertise of Rémy Martin, Atelier Thiery and Charles Kaisin in a celebration of teamwork and collaboration.
The sculpture will be displayed at the museum's Atrium until 28 June.
