Felipe Pantone's vision

To show how an extremely traditional brand can also be intensely in the present. Not futuristic, but present and bursting with dynamism.

A Layered Process

In his creative process, the artist picked up on favorite themes from previous works, mixing them with patterns gleaned from long-forgotten motifs in the Maison Hennessy archives.

Seeing Stars

Pantone’s “W-3 Dimensional Three Stars” artwork for the carafe revisits the emblem used by Hennessy in the past in a graphic scape shot through with a lightning bolt, a symbol that evokes the speed of the cyber age.

The result is a pure fusion of the artist’s mesmerizing color, bold graphics and 3D illusions with Hennessy’s refined expression of expertise and consistency, centuries in the making.
