Weiche Wu 巫瑋哲 is a Taiwanese designer. He studied Industrial Design at Chang Gung University in Taiwan and received his MA in Industrial Design from Central St. Martins, London. In addition to product design, Weiche also specialises in graphic design, photography and critical design thinking. His expertise lies in shaping products in a very visual way, which in short means designing with a priority on aesthetics.


In 2011, Weiche worked with the French company, Rémy Martin, to generate a new concept for their heritage Louis XIII brand. The final outcome ’Cérémonie pour un Roi’ and ‘L'essence de Rémy Martin’ have been featured at MAISON & OBJECT in Paris, Salone in Milan, Wallpaper Magazine and in other global media.


Upon graduation from Central St. Martins, he joined Benjamin Hubert’s studio in London and participated in several iconic projects such as ‘Tenda’ lamp and ‘Construction Site’ in 2012 Designjunction.


In 2012, he founded Taipei based Union Atelier. The studio works on varying design commissions and collaborations; and with the deliberate intention to combine international design trends with Taiwanese traditions, the team has created, and consistently applies, their own unique signature design language.

Cérémonie pour un Roi
King's ceremony

The new design of Louis XIII display creates an elegant ceremony to taste the most luxury cognac in the world. The serving tools represent the old technique of how a good cognac has been made, which is a significant ritual of the cognac masters. To extract an eau-de-vie from a cask, the cellar master uses a pipette in a very expert and fascinating gesture. The same delicate tool is used to serve to each guest the precious nectar.

Grâce à son nouveau design, ce set de présentation du Louis XIII propose une élégante mise en scène au caractère cérémoniel pour la dégustation du meilleur cognac du monde. Les ustensiles empreintés aux experts de la fabrication du cognac rappellent ce savoir-faire ancestral. D'un geste précis et fascinant, le Maitre de Chais prélève une quantité mesurée d'eau-de vie directement dans le fût au moyen d'une longue pipette. Le même ustensile délicat est utilisé pour servir à chaque invité le precieux nectar.
