The Martell XO Exclusive Architect Edition, a collaboration with internationally renowned French architect and urban planner Christian de Portzamparc.
MARTELL recently unveiled the Martell XO Exclusive Architect Edition, a collaboration with internationally renowned French architect and urban planner Christian de Portzamparc, best known for acclaimed buildings such as the Bastille Opera in Paris, the Philharmonie in Luxembourg and the Cidade de Music in Rio de Janeiro, among others.
This is the second collaboration of Martell XO with an architect, the first being with Paul Andreu, architect of the Beijing Opera House, in 2009.
Taking light as a source of inspiration, de Portzamparc pays tribute to the amber liquid of Martell XO with the striking dome case that beautifully captures the light and uses the cognac’s distinct mahogany sheens to create a diffused glow. The Martell XO bottle itself features a gold bottleneck and cork anointed with a gold metal label.
Only 10 bottles of the Martell XO Exclusive Architect Edition designed by Christian de Portzamparc are available in Malaysia, and are available by invitation only.
