Cognac Frapin’s Cuvée Rabelais: Suspended in time

Cognac Frapin called on agency Partistan du Sens for the design of its ultra-premium Cuvée Rabelais launched this month. The rounded decanter appears as if suspended, supported by a metal base gilded in 24-carat gold.

Gérald Galdini, Design Manager and CEO of Paris-based design agency Partisan du Sens explains “We wanted to recount the singularity of the maison and the concentration and evaporation that time brings to the liquid”.  

Designed by Cristallerie de Saint-Louis, this crystal decanter is made by blowing glass, cutting it, and decorating it by hand with 18-carat gold leaf. With its rounded base, which evokes cognac barrel bands, it features a series of half circles that are concentric. Variations in thickness of the glass create a sense of concentration, time and the “Angel’s Share”.
