A Banquet of Nature
Maison Perrier-Jouët’s Art of the Wild takes over Miami
On December 4, 2019 Maison Perrier-Jouët revealed “A Banquet of Nature by Perrier-Jouët” at Faena Hotel, marking the start of Design Miami/ 2019. This experience was filled with surprising moments of re-enchantment and aimed to reconnect guests with nature and one another, as well as engage them in a new artistic tasting ritual. It was enriched by the creativity of the House’s Artisans of the Wild, among whom model Winnie Harlow was in attendance, alongside dancer and choreographer Blanca Li, three-starred Michelin chef Pierre Gagnaire, designer Andrea Mancuso and contemporary art gallerist Emmanuel Perrotin. Their collaboration with the House formed an authentic and unprecedented dialogue between nature, wine, design and cuisine.
Maison Perrier-Jouët and Pierre Gagnaire: nature as a common source of inspiration
When speaking of the early days of his career, the chef grants that cooking wasn’t his passion to begin with. But that all changed when he learned that food could give life meaning and stir deep emotions. This was precisely the idea behind “A Banquet of Nature by Perrier-Jouët” in Miami: to throw a banquet that would leave a lasting memory. Each dish was considered with sensitivity, as a work of art, rich in flavour and aesthetic. Like Maison Perrier-Jouët, Pierre Gagnaire finds his inspiration in exuberant nature, whose complex qualities he strives to harness to reveal in their full sophistication.

With Metamorphosis, Perrier-Joüet expands its dialogue between nature, champagne and design to offer a new, artistic tasting ritual
Maison Perrier-Jouët renews the dialogue between nature, champagne and design with Metamorphosis: a collection of six glasses and a champagne bowl by Italian designer Andrea Mancuso, of Analogia Project. It will be on display in a singular setting throughout Design Miami/ 2019. This collaboration is infused with Maison Perrier-Jouët’s vision of reinvented nature. It forms part of an artistic tasting ritual, exploring the metamorphoses of nature and the way the House transforms grapes into champagne using over 200 years of savoir-faire.
A reinvented banquet that builds on the talent of the Artisans of the Wild
Dancer and choreographer Blanca Li unveiled Metamorphosis to guests during the banquet. With harmonious movement and bursts of unbridled energy, she transformed the presentation of the glasses into a magical and unforgettable moment.
Model Winnie Harlow, meanwhile, helped to spark conversation between the guests thanks to her unique personality. She was joined by contemporary art gallerist Emmanuel Perrotin, who attended among other influential figures from the art community.
