L’Or de Jean Martell “Dome” by Eric Gizard


The house of Martell has collaborated with French interior architect and designer Eric Gizard to create the “Dôme” gift box for L’Or de Jean Martell.  I worked by drawing inspiration from cabinets of curiosities where collectors would store precious, almost magical objects in Renaissance Europe,” Eric Gizard said. “I was also inspired by silver cloches from great restaurants that excite curiosity and showcase the revelation of an exceptional dish.” The Dome’s base contains a hidden book that emerges with a single push. A mirror placed behind the bottle reflects and enhances the colour of this intense cognac. L’Or de Jean Martell is a blend of very old Grande Champagne and Borderies eaux-de-vie, creating a unique blend of elegance, power and roundness. This blend consists over 400 rare eaux-de-vie, some more than a century old, and they come in a precious crystal decanter. The cognac is a testimony to Jean Martell, whose founding principles are based on the pursuit of perfection. It has notes of fruited candy, sweet spices and gingerbread.

The Camera Corner.

Now, if you scroll back any more than 2 pages, you’ll probably find some collection of work from a photographer that has thoroughly impressed me, or has displayed some stunningly inventive techniques in their body of work that landed them on this blog.  But one thing I’ve never focused on was the camera.  A camera is the only thing that can help people capture moments in time, that can double as a tool to create a work of art for certain photographers, so when I saw a sick collection of vintage, film, collectors cameras, I had to throw them up.
