With regard to Martell Cordon Bleu Limited Edition, it was important to take it towards modernity, while keeping the historical foundation. When walking around Château de Chanteloup, I came across a rare ‘Grand Antique’ French marble. I decided to mix this marble effect with gold to glorify iconic Martell Cordon Bleu.

MARTELL CORDON BLEU LIMITED EDITION BY MATHIAS KISS

For its 2019 gifting collection, Maison Martell launched an unprecedented collaboration with four international creative talents. Hailing from diverse domains and cultures, they are united by a spirit of audacity which led them to forge their own path to success – something they share with Maison Martell and its founder Jean Martell.

Mathias Kiss, who started out as a craftsman restoring historic buildings before achieving renown in contemporary art, transformed iconic Martell Cordon Bleu with his trademark mix of tradition and modernity. Reinterpreted by the artist’s avant-garde vision, antique marble becomes a precious motif in gold and blue to emphasize the iconic status of this cognac.
