Marc began working with Dom Pérignon in 2007. After several collaborations, this exclusive champagne cooler was created, combining the distinguished techniques of traditional craftsmanship and Marc’s modern design.

“Seikado”, a pewter workshop in Kyoto Japan founded in 1838, worked on its production and brought the unique and modern design into shape.

An exquisitely calculated functionality lies behind its minimal form, and the particular colour and warmth of pewter and the traditional Japanese aesthetic of wabi and sabi exude quiet simplicity and subdued refinement.
