No matter the field we are in, all of us are creatives in our own unique ways. And if the ideas we come up with are unique and innovative—be it in music, home interior design or even champagne making—they open a world of possibilities that extend beyond our imagination. The results are priceless.
That can be said of storied Champagne house Dom Perignon, which is now under the helm of chef de cave Vincent Chaperon. While the maison has been making its vintage bubbly according to its exacting standards since 1921, its continued pursuit of creative freedom has led to the launch of the Limited Edition Vintage 2010 and the Rosé Vintage 2006 in collaboration with Grammy-winning multihyphenate Lady Gaga.
Mother Monster is known to break the norms of music and fashion, and this exclusive collaboration with Dom Perignon has created a “Queendom” or a shared universe where like-minded individuals who push the boundaries of creativity are celebrated.
No one understands creative freedom more than Ministry of Design founder and director Colin Seah. He’s one of the most lauded local designers of our time, having won many accolades throughout his career, including the prestigious President*s Design Awards not once, but twice.
“Creativity is the lifeblood of what we do (as designers),” affirms Seah, whose ethos is to “question, disturb and redefine” spaces to create timeless designs that draw guests in with their holistic experiences. Seah recognises though that his creativity is limited to his own experiences and dreaming up imaginative designs for his studio isn’t a one-man job but a collaborative effort with his equally talented team. Thus, his role has become a facilitator of creativity at their “blue sky sessions”, where he refines and edits ideas based on his understanding of the clients’ needs.
