LE FIL D'OR
By Patricia Urquiola
Designed for the Ruinart Blanc de Blancs cuvée, part of the 2010 edition of the Collection Prestige, Le fil d'Or by Patricia Urquiola is the contemporary tribute of a talented, internationally renowned designer to a symbolic object in the world of champagne, the muselet.
Tell me the story of the muselet
The muselet is not simply a wire cage; it has been reincarnated as a bottle stopper. Its age-old frame has been transformed into a sophisticated structure, its twisted metal wire into a precious thread.
A Patron of Contemporary Art and Design
The House of Ruinart has enjoyed close and long-standing relations with the art and design world, starting in 1896 when André Ruinart commissioned the Czech artist, Alfons Mucha, to create an advertising poster. Since then, Ruinart maintains close links with contemporary art giving carte blanche to well-known artists and providing support for major art fairs throughout the world.
