Bugatti and famous designer and manufacturer of jewelry Asprey, teamed up to create a one-of-one sculpture based on the La Voiture Noire, alongside 261 smaller sculptures, with respective NFTs. Only the most precious of materials will be used to form the La Voiture Noire sculpture, handmade in 24k rose gold and mounted upon a bespoke, handcrafted base, finished in the iconic signature colors of Bugatti and Asprey. The in-house silversmiths of the iconic British luxury brand will dedicate approximately four months at their workshop in London to the creation of the sculpture.
All Bugatti creations, from the Type 57 SC Atlantic that was infamously lost, to the contemporary La Voiture Noire, are designed to spark emotion, even when not being driven, as a static piece of automotive art. Timeless design is a fundamental philosophy at the core of both Bugatti’s and Asprey’s vision. Now, this exclusive partnership will enable Bugatti customers and enthusiasts to enjoy our design values from a new perspective through this stunning collection of objets d’art. – Wiebke Ståhl, Managing Director of Bugatti International
The NFT accompanying the La Voiture Noire-inspired sculpture will be the most exclusive and highest value element of the entire collection and will be linked to the physical artwork visually and via a QR code and unique serial identifier.
Bugatti x Asprey creative collaboration will also deliver a series of 261 smaller yet highly exclusive sterling silver sculptures, each with NFTs. The number 261 has been selected as it is the top speed of La Voiture Noire in mph. NFTs will be visually linked to each sculpture and via a QR code in the same way as the one-of-one sculpture. Owners will be able to log in to a dedicated microsite, aspreybugatti.com, and track the production process of their sculptures by Asprey’s master artisans. The physical sculptures will feature different color bases depending upon the NFT minted. Each colored base will relate to the iconic brand colors of Asprey and Bugatti, representing the partnership and history of both brands.
This year, at Asprey, we celebrate our 241st anniversary. The Asprey Digital Studio and the newly expanded London workshop heralds a new era. The partnership with Bugatti, such an iconic and artistic brand, is the ultimate collaboration to explore new production and artistic techniques. The bold colors mixed with the gold and silver precious metals create a vivid pop art theme. As for the “Noire”, only the buyer of the 1 of 1 will know that. – Ali Walker, Chief Creative Officer at Asprey’s Digital Studio
