Tameshigiri – Jacquart Design Trophy 2017

Saïd Belmir were Finalist at the Jacquart Design Trophy 2017 with his case project named “Tameshigiri” for the champagne Jacquart Blanc de Blancs. The main idea was to give a sharp cut representing the youth customers dynamism and audacity, into a monolith volume representing the tradition and the history of Maison Jacquart.

The cut then reveals an inside mineral layer, referencing the champagne’s mineral aspect. The whole case was made as a sensitive experiment, with real noble materials. The exterior part is made in oak, and the mineral part is made in Sea Green Stone by the Stoneleaf company.
