L’Eden by Perrier-Jouët opened to the public, who were invited to enjoy a glass of Perrier-Jouët champagne in the lounge designed by Noe Duchaufour Lawrance. Workshops, masterclasses and tours of the Bioresponsive Garden complemented the experience.

L’Eden by Perrier-Jouët celebrated the creative effervescence of London Design Festival with an installation from Parisian designer Noé Duchafour-Lawrance and the world’s first bio-responsive garden by Bompas & Parr. Noé Duchafour-Lawrance curated an interactive installation linking nature to the city, paying homage to the Art Nouveau emblem that has graced every bottle of Perrier-Jouët Belle Epoque designed by artist and glass maker Emile Gallé in 1902. The installation included a vertical system of 3D-printed elements suspended from the ceiling on a network of brass tubes, like branches from a pergola. At the end of each vine a champagne glass hung upside down by its stem, ready to be filled with Perrier-Jouët. The basement housed the world’s first bio-responsive garden, an installation filled with plants that mimicked the movements of explorers amongst them. L'Eden by Perrier-Jouët was named after the exclusive Eden cellar in Epernay, the home town of Champagne Perrier-Jouët where it’s rarest and most prestigious Champagnes are kept.
