Lost Time by Glithero
Design Miami/ 2012
Lost time… a marvellous experience that transforms perceptions. Designers Glithero
offer us a sensory installation inspired by nature, in a work which links
Art Nouveau in the style of Perrier-Jouët to the present.
The arts and crafts have been at the heart of the House of Perrier-Jouët from the outset. Design Miami/ an immense design forum, which has served as a meeting point for the major players in design and art, was where the designers Glithero and Perrier-Jouët first came together.
Lost Time is inspired by the natural voluptuous curves of the Art Nouveau movement, translating them into an experiential moment, ever true to the artistic heritage of the House.
The artists drew on the "La Sagrada Familia" by the famous Spanish artist Antoni Gaudí and his "upside down" model composed of a multitude of ropes falling from the ceiling. These ropes of pearls that are reflected in a basin like dewdrops under the vaults of the Perrier-Jouët cellars, in a vision of Lost Time.
Time which stands still in the House cellars, working its magic on the wines, allowing the craftsmen and women space to practise their arts. Time, which is the absolute Master of the House of Perrier-Jouët.
Lost Time will soon be exhibited at the Maison Belle Epoque among the 200 pieces in the Art Nouveau collection.
Glithero is built upon the joined conceptual interests of Sarah van Gameren and Tim Simpson. A couple of young designers based in London who draw their inspiration from nature, natural forms and the values of Art Nouveau. For Perrier-Jouët and inspired by the House, they have created Lost Time, a work like an experience beyond time itself.
