A tribute to the luscious golden viscosity of Martell cognac by Jean Nouvel

The House of Martell has announced its partnership with Jean Nouvel, one of the world’s most famous modern architects. The collaboration has given rise to the Martell Amber Lamp: a polysemic sculpture created as a tribute to the luscious golden viscosity of Martell cognac.

‘I wanted to express the warm, deep, amber burst of Martell cognac, to fascinate the eye by suggesting the many different interpretations of the lamp,’ says Jean Nouvel. Indeed, the richly organic object, composed of a glass bulb with a sleek metal staff, emits pulsing, shimmering waves of light that suggest a range of different interpretations: a cognac glass, a grape or piece of fruit, a living heart.

Crafted in France, 20 models of the Martell Amber Lamp have been produced to be displayed in prestigious art galleries and museums across the globe, including the Center of Architecture and Design in San Francisco and Jean Martell’s Château de Chanteloup in Cognac.
