After several collaborations with Dom Pérignon, Marc created this exclusive champagne cooler, combining the distinguished techniques of traditional craftsmanship and his contemporary design. Seikado, a pewter workshop in Kyoto, Japan founded in 1838, worked on its production and brought the unique and modern piece into existence. An exquisitely calculated functionality lies behind its minimal form, and the particular colour and warmth of pewter exudes quiet simplicity and subdued refinement.
