Beauté du Siècle by Jean-Michel Othoniel
A curiosity cabinet, a treasure chest: this object speaks of the Hennessy tradition in Jean-Michel Othoniel’s Baroque language. This creative interpretation, “Beauté du Siècle,” is a tribute to craftsmanship. More than ten types of artisans worked together to create this one-of-a-kind case. The shimmering sides of the case are the work of master glassmakers. The structure of the case, in cast aluminum, has been decorated with Jean-Michel Othoniel’s signature rings. Two Murano glass beads with an amber sheen, blown in the Salviati workshops, enhance the structure and echo the cognac contained within.
