Ruinart Champagne Reclaimed Wood Packaging by Piet Hein Eek

February 5th, 2015 by retail design blog

Dutch Furniture Designer Piet Hein Eek has partnered with Ruinart Champagne, applying his ingenuity for recycled wood for more than twenty years – creating sustainable furniture designs, accessories, and lights – by developing a series of limited edition, handcrafted packaging for the French brand using his trademark material.


The Champagne company’s decision to move from using baskets to wooden boxes to ship its product in the late 18th century marks its high-regard for the medium, in which Eek has designed custom boxes constructed from pale gray, white, and cream pine wood to parallel the pigments in Ruinart’s Blanc de Blancs; its geometric shape specifically contoured around the form of the bottle. Eek lightly sands each finished piece to guarantee softness, covering it with a veil of fine lacquer, and finally hand assembling the wooden panels into the shape of the champagne case.”
