This ice bucket cost $7000 and is made from grape skins
To celebrate its five-year partnership with DesignMiami, Champagne house Perrier-Jouët has unveiled the exclusive, limited-edition Perrier-Jouët Marc Metamorphosis ice bucket.
San Francisco–based architect Andrew Kudless designed the first-of-its-kind, 3D–printed container using the powder of Chardonnay grape skins. With prune-like petals and a pinecone hue, each piece retails for $US5000 (or about $A6950).
The ice bucket was one of four pieces that Kudless displayed at this year’s DesignMiami. In addition to the ice bucket, Kudless created a strand garden made from oak veneer screens, a 3D–printed plastic table, and a bench inspired by the chalk walls of Perrier-Jouët’s wine cellars — all products involved in the process of making wine.
