To celebrate its 150th anniversary, Hennessy X.O presents a sculptural decanter designed by architect Frank Gehry to be sold for $17,000 a bottle.
Using his signature sculptural style to reinterpret Hennessy X.O’s iconic bottle, the prolific creator marries gold and glass to extol the rich legacy of the Hennessy Maison. The end result ushers in a fitting new era for the Extra Old Cognac with a striking design that encapsulates Frank Gehry’strademark unconventional aesthetic with Hennessy’s daring sensibilities.
“It was an honour to be asked to celebrate this milestone for Hennessy X.O,” says Gehry.
“While I was excited, it was also daunting because a bottle of cognac is already a work of art, one you can smell, taste, and feel – it doesn’t need embellishment as it’s already there.”
“We are showing how we can be creative within that language. There’s such a powerful history and a serious emotional commitment from the people that make this product. It has a resonance that’s interesting to tie into and become a part of.”
The Frank Gehry 150th anniversary Hennessy XO decanter will be limited to just 150 instances. Proceeds from the Anniversary Masterpiece will go towards Unfinished Business, an initiative that helps small businesses through financial and mentorship means amid the challenges of Covid-19.
