Ritsue Mishima’s Glimmering Glass for Perrier-Jouët

By Katy Donoghue

December 1, 2015

Each year at Design Miami/, Perrier-Jouët collaborates with an artist or designer on a new project that mixes art, design, and nature, a fitting homage to the champagne house’s Art Nouveau heritage. Last year, it was an interactive installation with the design duo mischer’traxler. This year, the bubbly brand tapped Ritsue Mishima, a Japanese maker whose material of choice is glass.

The medium pairs perfectly with Perrier-Jouët. In 1902 it commissioned glassmaker Émile Gallé to create its now-iconic bottle, which he decorated with Japanese anemones. Mishima was born in Kyoto, and worked as a stylist and as an artist of flower installations before moving to Venice to study under a master glassblower on the island of Murano. Now having exhibited around the world, she works strictly in transparent glass—allowing for a purer diffusion of light in her sculpture and objects.

For Design Miami/ Mishima will show All’ombra della luce, an immersive installation that plays with shadow, light, and harmony. In partnership with Perrier-Jouët, she’s also made a blown glass bowl fit for serving champagne, and a limited-edition gift set.
