DOWNTOWN DESIGN - COLLABORATION WITH VEUVE CLICQUOT
Veuve Clicquot’s Solaire lounge returns for Downtown Design 2023, and the inspired design narrative is steeped in history. Dubai studio C’est ici Design was tasked with the concept development and design, which pays homage to the recovery of 47 Veuve Clicquot bottles from a shipwreck dating back to the 19th century in the Baltic Sea. The bottles remained perfectly preserved in the depths of the ocean and set the foundation for the lounge’s theme. Here, C’est ici Design founder Monica Arango shares her insight into the design of the lounge, offering an exclusive look ahead of Downtown Design 2023. “The lounge is a place of togetherness and connection with the design industry, and we are delighted to be part of this project,” she says.
