François Clicquot married Barbe-Nicole Ponsardin in 1798 and died in 1805, leaving his widow (veuve in French) in control of his Champagne production company (founded in 1772 by his father). She became the first woman to take over a Champagne house. Under Madame Clicquot’s guidance, the firm became a great success and is one of the world’s premium champagne labels. Since 1987 the Veuve Clicquot company has been part of the Louis Vuitton Moët Hennessy group of luxury brands.
Veuve Clicquot’s headquarters in Manhattan’s Chelsea district was designed by Traboscia-Roiatti Architects. Their task was to take this established company to a new place through its interior design, enhancing its “bubbly chic” image. The loft-inspired transformation of this 13,500 square foot office space features the sleek Selux M100 throughout the many conference rooms and offices.
