the Kotoli Giftbox
Masterpiece London, which takes place from 30 June – 5 July 2011, with a Preview on 29 June.
As the oldest champagne house in the Moet Hennessy portfolio, Ruinart prides itself on remaining true to its roots whilst also moving creatively and innovatively with the times. As such, Ruinart has collaborated with Japanese design house Nendo, and artist Oki Sato to create a stunning gift box. This will be launched in the UK by Oki Sato at the design, contemporary art and antiques fair : Masterpiece 2011.
A multi-functional, multifaceted box, Nendo has drawn inspiration from nature and the skies, with Kotoli’s literal translation being ‘small bird’. As well as a bottle of Blanc de Blancs champagne in the box, Nendo has designed two beautiful champagne flutes and a delicate bottle stopper which doubles up as champagne flute holder, which echo the teme of "Small Birds" by lookign like two little birds perched on a branch.
