Sabre G.H.Mumm by Ross Lovegrove
In keeping with the iconic tradition of sabrage that has blessed Champagne culture, purveyors of taste G.H.Mumm celebrate the gesture in a collaboration with designer Ross Lovegrove.
A smooth and weighty object, Lovegrove’s interpretation of this traditional sentiment acts as the perfect accompaniment for the process. Its curved edges add to the physicality of the gesture without feeling overwhelming or indeed unnecessary.
“I was totally seduced by the gesture and experience of Sabrage, which inspired me to create a piece with a flowing, seamless shape which suggests restraint and a moment of revelation” – Ross Lovegrove, Designer
Albeit the idea of using a sabre on a day to day basis is slightly innocuous, the sheer admiration for functionality in such a form is enough reason for it to be adorned.
