To mark the grand finale of Hennessy’s 250-year anniversary marathon, the Cognac giant launches a special edition bottle of its Hennessy X.O Exclusive Collection designed by Tom Dixon: Hennessy X.O Exclusive Collection 8.
For the special edition, the British star designer got inspired by the magical qualities of crystal, diamonds, and precious stones. He chose a sparkling silver to create a relief-like surface for the bottle, to reproduce the sensation of these valuable minerals.
For Dixon, this special carafe of Hennessy X.O in celebration of the anniversary unites light, materiality, and form in the most harmonious way. He already designed a special X.O collection edition for the Maison Hennessy in 2014, that time the “crystals” were bronze.
The designer’s work is represented in museum collections across the world, including the Victoria & Albert Museum in London, the Museum of Modern Art in New York, as well as the Centre Pompidou in Paris. Let’s hope Hennessy makes it into a museum collection one day with these masterpieces!
The edition will be available in October 2015 and the price is around 190 Euro (around $220).
