Chef Pierre Negrevergne meets Kossi Aguessy

Design has become an essential part of our everyday aesthetics that we seize the opportunity to view it and to advance it.  Such a perk up in design is the “2″ Wine collection where French designer Kossi Aguessy gives a new look to Chef Pierre Negreverne’s wine collection.

Chef Negrevergne created a wine collection that does not differ that much from his cuisine; “the wines are simple and go up to the purpose.” The links in his cuisine are based on herbs as agastache, mint, pistachio nut, Basil and vegetables.  The Chef clearly knows that the simpler a dish looks, the more complicated its elaboration is.  His wine breeding does not differ from the ideal dish; Negrevergne claims “at the origin, for the first collection, I stayed in the sobriety of the starting up for the second vintage I tried to create a wine of pleasure above all!  Power the taste of the fruit and a beautiful length in mouth.”

Chef Negrevergne commissioned Kossi Aguessy to design a bottle which will envelope this exceptional wine.  The bottle designed has simple lines and classic form, while it is elegant and the transparency of the bottle allows for one the five senses to be satisfied before the bottle is uncorked.  Furthermore, a case made of Makassar wood, cork and corian symbolizes the innovation and the creativity which Chef NegrevergneNegrevergne breeding the wines travelled Aguessy to a journey between the traditional and the future to only design a product that will stand-out; “a product to be”. used to create his wines.  This sophisticated and avant-garde method of Negrevergne breeding the wines travelled Aguessy to a journey between the traditional and the future to only design a product that will stand-out; “a product to be”.

Aguessy is a designer who was born in Togo, West Africa in 1977.  Design in Togo means little to most as they had and still have more important needs to satisfy although its economy is strongly based in agriculture.  Aguessy and his family left Togo in 1980 and first went to the United States, however, his travelling did not stop there as he moved to London where he attended Central St. Martins and pursed his Bachelor in Arts.  Upon graduation he left again from London and travelled to Brazil his mother’s birthplace and ended settling in Paris, France in 1998.  The travelling experience and the cross cultural movement from one ethnic background to another has created and greatly influenced Aguessy to what he is today.  Aguessy describes himself as a “child of Africa that pays no attention to the boundaries being then the son of a global education with deep multicultural roots.”
