Thirty unique Mathusalem sculptural decanters entirely handmade at the famed Baccarat factory will be available this October.

Hennessy, the world’s best-selling Cognac, is proud to release an exclusive Mathusalem sculptural masterpiece designed by world-renowned architect Frank Gehry, marking the first time one of his designs is brought to life by Baccarat. After creating 150 limited-edition decanters for Hennessy X.O’s 150th anniversary in 2020, the prolific creator has once again collaborated with Hennessy Maison to design 30 never-to-be-repeated masterpieces, marrying his impressive and daring style with the greatness of Hennessy’s Extra Old Cognac.

“The legendary Frank Gehry’s daring creative vision was one that could only be brought to life by the most talented craftsmen of their kind, the artisans of Baccarat. This, coupled with the legacy of the Hennessy Maison, has resulted in a limited edition of thirty stunningly unique sculptures that prove to be more than just a decanter,” said Laurent Boillot, Hennessy President and Chief Executive Officer. “This design takes Frank Gehry’s signature sculptural style, Baccarat’s know-how, and Hennessy’s daring sensibilities to the next level. With crystal expertly carved in a way that mimics the look of the classic serve of Hennessy X.O over ice, something that provided inspiration to Gehry during the design process, this sculptural masterpiece showcases the richness of the spirit while paying homage to the craftsmanship that goes into making this exquisite product.”

Realized by the luxury French brand Baccarat, the art pieces are the result of a unique savoir-faire combined with the endless creativity of Frank Gehry. The monumental 6-liter Mathusalem decanter emerges in a powerful and daring posture that elicits imagery of melting ice punctuated by the rich color of Cognac Hennessy X.O.

For Frank Gehry, whose passion for the movement of light is at the heart of this new creation, eliciting emotion from those who see his masterpieces signifies the ultimate success. “I actually cried when I saw it, so I hope that it elecits the same emotional response in others who see it maybe because they’ve never seen anything like this,” the world-renowned architect said when speaking about the Mathusalem he designed. “To me, it’s exciting to see something that pushes the boundaries, that has never been done before. I hope what we’ve created lives up to the same passion and craftsmanship that the makers of Hennessy in Cognac put into their product.”

Inspired by a visit to Cognac and the craftsmanship that goes into the making of Cognac Hennessy X.O, Frank Gehry’s striking creation leverages the unique know-how of the Baccarat artisans, handed down from generation to generation since 1764 – a legacy that dates as far back as Maison Hennessy, founded in 1765 -to bring to life his vision that reflects the vitality of the vineyards, the waters of the Charente River running through Cognac, the richness of the Hennessy X.O blend and the ice that it is so well paired with.

When the teams of the manufacture received the design of the monumental bottle, they discovered the incredible challenge given by Frank Gehry. The design and the dimensions of this unique creation presented rare technical complexities which required thirty individual molds to create each unique sculpture. For the craftsmen of Baccarat, holders of unique know-how, no feat is impossible and they were determined to respect the original design and took much pride in working with one of the greatest architects in the world. In close collaboration with Maison Hennessy, real teamwork ensued. From preliminary sketches to the first molds, from the creation of the rocks to the final cut, each step illustrates Baccarat’s excellence, innovation, and creativity. The making of the bottle required the implementation of new techniques, the creation of specific tools and adapted thermal cycles. Several months were needed to shape this sculptural work whose organic and powerful form incorporates the key elements of Baccarat: earth, water, air, fire.


The Hennessy X.O Mathusalem by Frank Gehry embodies the passion and perfection of the three collaborators: Frank Gehry, Baccarat and Cognac Hennessy, all in perpetual quest for new challenges and experiences to evoke emotion and lasting impressions.
Valorizing the iconicity of Frank Gehry, the Mathusalem will have a select distribution in exclusive luxury retail and private sale points and will be sold for 150 000 € each.

To learn more about the Hennessy X.O Mathusalem by Frank Gehry, visit Hennesy.com or @Hennessy on Instagram.


Frank Gehry has built an illustrious architectural career that has spanned over six decades. His public and private work throughout the world – including the Bilbao Guggenheim, the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles, the Art Gallery of Ontario, Hong Kong’s Opus Tower, and the Fondation Louis Vuitton in Paris – is designed with a shared clear-cut philosophy that people must exist comfortably within his spaces and an insistence that his buildings address the context and culture of their sites. Early in his career, Frank Gehry also began to create both sculpture and furniture, which similarly reflected his love of inventive forms, texture and unexpected materials.
Throughout his illustrious career, Frank Gehry has also received honorary doctoral degrees from such esteemed institutions as the Rhode Island School of Design, Princeton University, and, most recently, the University of Oxford. He has also held teaching positions at many universities, including Harvard, UCLA, and Yale, where he is still teaching. His contribution to architecture has earned Frank Gehry some of its most significant recognitions in the field, including the prestigious Pritzker Architecture Prize, the Friedrich Kiesler Prize and the Presidential Medal of Freedom from Barack Obama. The Hennessy X.O 150th anniversary Masterpiece in September 2020 was Frank Gehry’s first project with Hennessy.


Baccarat (Paris Euronext, BCRA) is French luxury brand internationally renowned as a leader in high-end and exclusive crystal products. Since its foundation in 1764, the company, whose artisanal manufacture is based in Baccarat in the Lorraine region of Eastern France, has been synonymous with a unique savoir-faire and has come to symbolize an inimitable French Art de Vivre. For over 250 years, the brand has inspired leading designers from across the world. Ranging from iconic lighting to unique tableware and decorative ojects, fine jewelry and tailor-made flacons, the brand’s products and tradition of excellence are widely distributed around the globe.
Since December 23, 2020, Baccarat has been indirectly and mainly controlled by Tor Investment Management LP (on behalf of the funds it manages), which controls and holds the majority of the capital of Fortunie Legend Limited Sarl, a company registered in Luxembourg which owns itself 97,1% of the capital and voting rights of Baccarat.


The leader in Cognac, the Maison Hennessy has shone around the world with its exceptional know-how for more than 250 years. Built on founder Richard Hennessy’s spirit of conquest, the brand is present in more than 160 countries. Based in the heart of the Charente region, Hennessy is also a steadfast pillar of the regional economy. The House’s success and longevity are rooted in the excellence of its cognacs, each of which is born of a unique process of transmission of know-how from generation to generation. The first spirits house to be certified ISO 14001, Hennessy unites its capacity for innovation and the support of all of its partners to protect this exceptional area. As a crown jewel of the LVMH Group, Hennessy is a major contributor to French international trade, with 99% of production sold in export, and a worldwide ambassador for the French art de vivre.

ACJ and contemporary artist, Cyril Kongo, partner to offer a special ACJ TwoTwenty Airbus cabin edition

ACJ and contemporary artist, Cyril Kongo, partner to offer a special ACJ TwoTwenty Airbus cabin edition

#ACJ #CyrilKongo

Monaco, 23 September 2021 – Airbus Corporate Jets (ACJ) and world renowned contemporary artist Cyril Kongo, a.k.a. Mr Colorful, have jointly designed an ACJ cabin – the ACJ TwoTwenty special cabin edition by Cyril Kongo.

Cyril Kongo has a strong pioneering spirit which perfectly complements the ACJ’s team’s innovative mindset, turning the extra-large biz-jet into a flying contemporary art gallery, thus, offering a never-done-before novel ambiance.


The entire signature cabin has been envisioned by the ACJ design team to deliver comfort, connectivity and functionality in one space while Cyril Kongo’s touch brings the cabin design to a next level of emotion.

Notably, the main lounge, which will be partly hand painted by Cyril Kongo, combines carefully chosen branded textures and fabrics, crafted to kindle the sumptuous comfort, space and luxury of your own private art gallery.

The special cabin edition has been proudly curated to allow passengers to properly rest or enjoy fine dining with valued friends and family, while admiring all the colours that life has to offer. Cyril Kongo and the ACJ design team took full advantage of the ACJ TwoTwenty’s large fuselage which is at least two times wider than other business jets, allowing for a spaciously crafted table greeting, potentially serving up to eight guests. Comllux will be the exclusive completion partner for the first 15 aircraft.

The ACJ TwoTwenty will offer unrivalled personal space with 73m2/785 ft2 of floor space, and will be the only business jet to offer six large VIP living areas for up to 19 passengers. The ACJ TwoTwenty will have an intercontinental range, capable of flying up to 5,650nm / 10,500km (over 12 hours flight time) and is priced just below the Ultra Long Range (ULR) business jet aircraft.

The ACJ TwoTwenty benefits from the ACJ DNA: ultimate comfort, intercontinental range, unbeatable economics and pioneering technology.

The ACJ TwoTwenty was launched in late 2020 and has already won orders for six aircraft. Comlux will be the first to take delivery of the ACJ TwoTwenty this winter and the first aircraft will enter into service early 2023.

About Cyril Kongo

Urban artist above all, Kongo is part of the first generation of French graffiti artists. Committed and revolutionary he was instrumental in defending graffiti as a school of fully-fledged art. Indeed when the painter talks about his discipline he evokes its technical and visual complexity and he describes it as a “savoir-faire”. Calligraphic abstraction, fluid lines and spontaneity allied with a committed and clear purpose made him an unprecedented artist. Cyril Kongo is mastering his urban vocabulary in order to achieve his vision. He is trying to highlight the cultural richness from the ancient techniques throughout his own knowledge.

Sotheby’s – Picasso: Masterworks from the MGM Resorts Fine Art Collection

Sotheby’s Is Partnering With MGM Resorts for a Mega $100 Million Picasso Auction in Las Vegas

In a seemingly unprecedented collaboration, Sotheby’s is teaming up with MGM Resorts in Las Vegas to auction off a rare trove of Picasso works that it expects to rake in some $100 million.

And rather than sell the lots at a marquee evening sale in an art capital like New York, Sotheby’s will stage the auction at the Bellagio Hotel in Vegas on October 23.

An extraordinary collaboration between two industry greats, Picasso: Masterworks from the MGM Resorts Fine Art Collection features exceptional works from the MGM Resorts Collection hosted by Sotheby’s and conducted live from the Bellagio Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas on October 23. This historic auction will comprise eleven works, all until recently on display in the Bellagio’s renowned Picasso restaurant. Marking the first ever marquee auction in North America outside Sotheby’s signature New York auction venue, this event is highlighted by Picasso’s Femme au béret rouge-orange, a stunning portrait of one of the artist’s most influential lovers and muses. Painted in 1938, this picture is one of the last great paintings of Marie-Thérèse Walter.

Joining this striking portrait are two monumental canvases from 1969. One of Picasso’s largest paintings from this period, Homme et enfant reflects the artist’s spontaneous late style and speaks to his legacy as an artist, man and father—all central preoccupations in Picasso’s later years. Both Homme et enfant and Buste d’homme, which recontextualizes the artist as a virile musketeer, were featured in the historic 1970 exhibition at the Palais des Papes in Avignon organized by Christian Zervos.

Two Cubist-inspired still lifes round out the exceptional group of paintings. Painted during Picasso’s period of isolation in Paris during World War II, Nature morte aux fleurs et au compotier and Nature morte au panier de fruits et aux fleurs stand as testaments to Picasso’s enduring spirit of creation and embody the artist’s defiant resistance in the face political conflict. Nature morte au panier de fruits et aux fleurs was exhibited at the 1944 Salon d’Automne; known as the ‘Salon de la Libération,’ the historic show that followed the liberation of Paris and was Picasso’s first major exhibition since the war began.

Further curated with an array of ceramics and two masterful works on paper, Picasso: Masterworks from the MGM Resorts Fine Art Collection charts the inimitable career of one of history’s greatest artists.

Apple Tower Theatre abre sus puertas este jueves en el centro de Los Ángeles

Apple Tower Theatre abre sus puertas este jueves en el centro de Los Ángeles

El histórico cine ha estado ligado a la tecnología desde 1927
Apple Tower Theatre abrirá sus puertas en el histórico distrito de los cines de Broadway, en el corazón de Los Ángeles.
LOS ÁNGELES Apple ha mostrado hoy un adelanto de su nueva tienda en el histórico Tower Theatre en el centro de Los Ángeles. Apple Tower Theatre es uno de los proyectos de restauración más importantes de Apple hasta la fecha, y su objetivo es promover aún más la creatividad en el corazón de la ciudad. Coincidiendo con la inauguración, Apple lanzará también Today at Apple Creative Studios, una iniciativa global que ofrecerá una experiencia práctica y orientación a los jóvenes creativos.
El cine se ha actualizado por completo frente a los terremotos para que las generaciones futuras puedan seguir disfrutándolo.
Apple Tower Theatre es la tienda número 26 de Apple en la zona de Los Ángeles. Su plantilla consta de casi un centenar de personas con gran talento, que se sumarán a los más de 3.000 empleados que trabajan en Apple Stores en la región. Apple TV+, que también tiene su sede en Los Ángeles, colabora con muchas de las mentes más creativas del mundo y contribuye a crear miles de puestos de trabajo en el sector creativo de California.
«Los Ángeles rebosa arte, música y entretenimiento en cada esquina, y nos alegramos de estrechar aún más nuestro vínculo con esta ciudad tan especial», ha dicho Deirdre O’Brien, vicepresidenta sénior de Retail + People de Apple. «Apple Tower Theatre rinde homenaje a la historia y el legado de esta capital del entretenimiento».
El legado de innovación tecnológica del Tower Theatre continúa, ya que ahora es el lugar perfecto para descubrir la gama completa del iPhone, iPad y Mac de Apple, así como para impulsar la creatividad mediante las sesiones de Today at Apple.

Un edificio con mucha historia

El histórico Tower Theatre, que fue el primer cine equipado para películas sonoras de Los Ángeles, fue diseñado en 1927 por el renombrado arquitecto cinematográfico S. Charles Lee. Ese legado de innovación tecnológica continúa hoy como el lugar perfecto para descubrir la línea completa del iPhone, iPad y Mac de Apple, cada uno de los cuales ha transformado el cine, la fotografía y la composición musical de hoy.
Tras su cierre en 1988, el espacio quedó vacío y sin uso. Con tanto mimo como en los proyectos de restauración anteriores, Apple ha colaborado con destacados artistas, restauradores y las autoridades de la ciudad de Los Ángeles para preservar y recuperar la belleza y la grandeza de este cine con el máximo esmero. Se ha llevado a cabo una mejora sísmica integral en el edificio, y todas las superficies se han restaurado cuidadosamente.
Apple Tower Theatre se encuentra en la intersección entre la Eighth Street y Broadway, donde los visitantes reconocerán de inmediato la torre del reloj completamente restaurada, la marquesina de Broadway rediseñada, el exterior de terracota simplificado y el letrero histórico con un cambio de aires. Al atravesar las puertas de Broadway, los visitantes accederán al vestíbulo monumental inspirado en la Ópera de París de Charles Garnier, que presenta una gran escalera arqueada con pasamanos de bronce y flanqueada por columnas corintias de mármol.
La vidriera restaurada presenta un dibujo de flor de lis único con una tira de película enrollada y la emblemática franja púrpura de las primeras películas sonoras.
De izquierda a derecha: Al pasar por debajo de la renovada marquesina de Broadway y entrar a la tienda, los visitantes llegarán al vestíbulo monumental, inspirado en la Ópera de París de Charles Garnier.
En el corazón de la tienda se encuentra la zona del Forum y el video wall, que está ubicada debajo del arco completamente restaurado y rodeada por los palcos originales del cine. El Forum acogerá las sesiones de Today at Apple, donde las sesiones diarias gratuitas impartidas por miembros del equipo de Apple y la comunidad creativa de la zona servirán de inspiración y enseñarán habilidades prácticas. En el amplio auditorio, con bahías arqueadas adornadas y bronce restaurado, se exponen todos los productos favoritos de los clientes, incluidos los nuevos iMac, iPad Pro y Apple TV 4K.
Los visitantes que necesiten asistencia o reparaciones del equipo de Apple dispondrán de un amplio espacio, ya que los asientos originales del cine en la planta superior se han modernizado y hecho accesibles para crear un espacio abierto y flexible para las citas del Genius Bar. Se han instalado dos ascensores en el edificio para recibir a los clientes en todas las plantas de la nueva tienda.
El Forum está en el centro del cine y se ha rediseñado para acoger las sesiones de Today at Apple.

Furiosa Gallery presenta RGB de Irene Cruz en el Festival OFF de PhotoEspaña

Furiosa Gallery presenta RGB de Irene Cruz en el Festival OFF de PhotoEspaña

El próximo 5 de junio se abre al público RGB, la nueva exposición individual de Irene Cruz en la Galería Furiosa de Madrid, dentro del marco del festival off de Photoespaña.
La muestra está comisariada por Elvira Rilova y está compuesta por una veintena de obras, instalación y video.

RGB es una muestra que nace antes de este extraño 2020, inspirado por impactos variados, ante una necesidad de cambio personal, espiritual y estético en la artista Irene Cruz.

Desintegrando los límites de la fotografía y de la pintura, del video e incluso los de la música –pues la artista crea sus propias piezas sonoras-, con su particular mirada, y desde una total libertad creativa, Irene Cruz pinta con la luz sus imágenes con una belleza y una narratividad que resultan casi pictóricas, viniendo a defender, que el suyo, no es lenguaje ni simple ni mecánico.

Para lograr su objetivo utiliza los colores aditivos, a través de pigmentos y los mantiene en los más puros, rojos, verdes o azules.

Escribir con luz, pintar con luz, re-pintar con pigmentos extranjeros para la fotografía, simulando otra nueva luz intrusa (RGB) pero sin su esencia, innovando y divirtiéndose con las texturas y en cada pincelada cuestionando y diluyendo los límites del arte encima de las instantáneas de tintas pigmentadas directamente en placas de aluminio. Y siempre muy presente, el elemento humano con el que Irene Cruz pretende expandir nuestra concepción de la realidad social.

Irene Cruz juega en ocasiones, acudiendo a la intervención con pintura, entrelazando ambos lenguajes en un baile cromático que va más allá de la fotografía, pues también pinta con luz sus vídeos, con geles de colores rojos, verdes y azules (como en “Anhelo”, pieza que forma parte de RGB y que ha sido realizada junto al director D Eceolaza y el músico Sebastian Pecznik).

Para poner de manifiesto el proceso vital que ha significado para Irene la producción de RGB, reflejo de este transformador tiempo de pandemia, la muestra incluye además una video-instalación con todas las historias de Instagram que han surgido a lo largo de la gestación y producción del proyecto.

En RGB, Irene Cruz nos demuestra que la fotografía es una forma personal inagotable de mirar el universo, es un lenguaje alterno, que influye, recoge influencias y las transforma,
Porque, crear es para la artista una absoluta necesidad, una terapia donde canalizar el exterior en el interior y el interior al exterior; el ciclo de la vida.

INFO Inauguración sábado 5 de junio de 11h a 14h y de 15h a 20h. Del 5 de junio hasta el 18 de julio en el horario habitual de la galería. Dirección: Calle de Almadén, 13, Madrid, 28014, Barrio de las Letras, junto al CaixaForum

The Palme d’or Chopard, the Artisan of international film-making’s most prestigious award

The Palme d’or

Chopard, the Artisan of international film-making’s

most prestigious award

Every year, the Palme d’or, the Holy Grail of the Seventh Art, is awarded to the best film in the competition at the Cannes International Film Festival. The latest feature film to win it, Parasite by Bong Joon Ho, quite simply rewrote the history of cinema, confirming the absolute prestige and power of this trophy. As a longstanding partner to the Festival, Chopard is proud to accompany this annual launch into orbit of an exceptional talent. Since 1998, the Maison has been the Artisan of the Palme d’or and indeed of all the trophies awarded at the Festival’s closing ceremony.

On May 25th 2019, Bong Joon Ho was awarded the Palme d’or by Catherine Deneuve – having been unanimously chosen by a jury chaired by Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu – for his film Parasite. Stroking the blue morocco leather case containing the trophy, the overawed and deeply moved South Korean filmmaker admitted: “I was just a timid film buff who decided to become a film director at the age of 12. I never even imagined that I would touch this trophy. And winning the award is more priceless than ever.”

From that magical moment suspended in time, Parasite, a huge hit that reconciled audiences and critics in the same collective euphoria, swept up everything in its path, even conquering Hollywood.

The Palme d’or, a fantastic platform

The phenomenal triumph of Parasite reminded us that being awarded the supreme prize at the Cannes Film Festival offers the most spectacular launch pad for the career of both films and filmmakers in the firmament of the Seventh Art, confirming that the Palme d’or remains the most precious ‘open sesame’ for winning the hearts of the whole world.

After scooping every major award in the world one by one, the film honoured by the Palme d’or ended its wild ride in style by taking home the four most prestigious statuettes at the 2020 Oscars (Best Picture, Best Director, Best Original Screenplay, Best International Film) and by accomplishing two feats at the same time: not only was Parasite the first non-English speaking film to win the Best Picture Oscar, but also the first film to win the Best Picture and Best International Film Oscars together. This is unprecedented in the 92-year history of the American Film Academy! “Since its huge win at Cannes, Parasite has continued to rack up the most prestigious awards and to break records, making it undoubtedly one of the most repeatedly distinguished films in the history of cinema. A historic prize!” enthused Thierry Frémaux, General Delegate of the Cannes Film Festival.

Chopard, partner of the greatest cinematographic adventures

The story began in 1997. During a meeting with Pierre Viot (then President of the Cannes Festival), Caroline Scheufele (Co-President and Artistic Director of Chopard) suggested redesigning the Palme d’or. Symbolically, this keen film lover imagined a heart at the base of the Palme d’or branch presented the following year, giving a new lease on life to the trophy.

Through this thrilling palm, which has symbolised hearts beating in unison for more than 20’ years, a veritable hand-sculpted jewel composed of 19 yellow gold leaves resting on a unique cushion of rock crystal, the Maison Chopard, jeweller of the red carpet and official partner of the Cannes Film Festival since 1998, continues to share its passion for the cinema and its emotions with the entire world.

A shining example of the Maison’s commitment to sustainable luxury, the Palme d’or has been crafted in ethical Fairmined-certified yellow gold since 2014, making it the only ethical trophy in the world of cinema crafted with respect for people and for the environment.

In addition to the Palme d’or for the best film, the Maison’s Haute Joaillerie workshops craft all the trophies – in rock crystal engraved with a palm – awarded to the other winners at the closing ceremony, a traditionally unforgettable evening that opens up the realm of every possibility, as we now know more than ever.

In addition to the Palme d’or, Caroline Scheufele is also behind the Trophée Chopard, awarded each year since 2001 during the Cannes fortnight to an up-and-coming actress and actor, thus helping to shape the future of cinema.
