Bordeaux Wine Museum

The history and culture of wine revealed across animated tables

The Cite du Vin in Bordeaux was another successful collaboration with designers Casson Mann. Our three exhibits now make up part of the permanent display enjoyed by an international audience at the museum.

The installation consists of a complex projection mapping display showcasing three large tables laid with 2D and 3D props onto which six minute animations are projected. Working alongside Paris based production company A Propos, Squint/Opera produced three dialogues, each exploring a different theme: the service of wine through history, wine in varied social and cultural environments and the close links between wine and French gastronomy.

The multilayered ‘magic mirror’ animation is on the theme of wine and memory, illustrating childhood memories from writers. An integrated camera in the frame allows the visitor to catch a glimpse of themselves in a dreamlike setting. We also the developed the content for an interactive book, creating a selection of beautiful hand-drawn type and illustrations to reflect notes taken at a wine-tasting.
