Art and Wine Mix at Art Stage Singapore

20140116 Art Stage Singapore 1A trip to Art Stage Singapore 2014 to view the limited edition champagne box designed by Dutchman Piet Hein Eek for Ruinart turned into an exciting evening exploring the works of international and local artists. The preview was well attended, yet due to the spacious layout of the Marina Bay Sands Convention Centre there was plenty of elbow room. Art from eight different countries and regions in Asia Pacific are laid out in a museum-like exhibition format. The fair boasts around 158 galleries featuring the works of over 600 artists.

Ruinart is the official champagne for Art Stage Singapore, and patrons of the arts had the opportunity to sip on Ruinart Blanc de Blancs as they viewed the installation designed by Piet Hein Eek. Composed of two wooden, trapezoidal modules arranged in the form of an ‘hourglass’ and filled with Ruinart Blanc de Blancs bottles, the structure utilises the same recycled wood that has become the designer’s hallmark. The design was inspired by Maison Ruinart’s ground-breaking decision to move from using baskets to wooden boxes to ship its Champagne in the late 18th century.

The installation can be viewed in the Art Stage VIP Lounge during the duration of the fair which runs from 16-19 January and is located at the Marina Bay Sands Expo and Convention Centre, 10 Bayfront Ave, Singapore 018956. Bottles of the limited edition Ruinart Blanc de Blancs by Piet Hein Eek will be available for S$188 (750ml) and and S$388 (1500ml). Prices exclude GST.
