PERRIER-JOUËT PRESENTS ‘EPHEMERĀ’ AT DESIGN MIAMI/2014

In celebration of beauty and infusing art into everyday life, Perrier-Jouët invited mischer’traxler to create a work inspired by its Art Nouveau heritage unveiled at Design Miami/ 2014.

In celebration of beauty and infusing art into everyday life, Perrier-Jouët invited mischer’traxler to create a work inspired by its Art Nouveau heritage unveiled at Design Miami/ 2014. This is the third year that Perrier-Jouët commissions original work to be part of Design Miami/, a continuation of our support of exciting young designers. The master work, ‘ephemerā’ is an interactive series of design pieces that explore the magical dialogue between mankind and nature.

Ephemerā plays with the audience, inviting participation, discussion and questioning. Objects are set in a plain room, suggesting a deceptively simple installation of design-objects. This ostensibly legible set-up acts as a foil for a delicate game of hide-and-seek, played out through a mechanical and magical ornamental garden. The audience will find themselves drawn into an enjoyable, charming conversation with the work, and also with each other.  ‘ephemerā’ forms part of mischer’traxler’s Small Discoveries collection for Perrier-Jouët, marking the starting point of a year-long artistic residency.
