The House of CAMUS, the 150-year-old family-run cognac company, presents an outstanding work of art that brings together five exceptional Cuvee Cognacs from Cyril Camus’ private collection. Inspired by a concert piano, this black lacquered pedestal of genuine French origin was designed by Ateliers Drevelle and built entirely by hand brings together, for the first time ever, all five of the Masterpiece Collection Cuvees.
Resting on a single white lacquered steel leg which forms the letter C of CAMUS, it defies gravity. The edges of the table echo the facets of the five crystal decanters designed by the famous French sculptor Serge Mansau and manufactured in the Baccarat workshops. The idea was to create an exceptional piece of furniture to celebrate the end of a mythical year (Camus’ 150th anniversary) and enter into a new era.
“We wanted to compose a symphony for the senses as a tribute to 150 years of tradition and excellence, to set the tone for the next 150 years” explains Frédéric Dezauzier, Brand Ambassador.
Each Cuvee nestles in its own tailor-made compartment which opens to a touch of the fingertip, with an ode to each engraved onto an elegant brass plaque before it. Just as the tone of a single note is enhanced by a symphony, these Cuvees bring their own color to the aromatic palette offered by the keys on this organoleptic piano. A one-of-a-kind multi-sensorial experience…
This unique work of art is entirely hand made and of exclusively French origin, both with regards to the materials used as to the craftsmanship, requiring more than 300 hours’ work by six local artisans.
“We are not just celebrating the past 150 years, we are celebrating the beginning of the next 150 years”- Cyril CAMUS
