_Gold Phantom Opéra de Paris | Devialet
Drawing on the iconic gilded interiors of the Auditorium, each Gold Phantom Opéra de Paris | Devialet features the Paris Opera logo and gold leaf gills finished by Ateliers Gohard, according to meticulous and time-honored oil gilding methods. Handed down across 3 generations of traditional and fine application, they have treated each of Phantom’s side panels with the same original mastery used to restore and illuminate the gold of the Palais Garnier itself.
Oil gilding refers to the process of applying a specific type of varnish or ‘mordant’ to the surface of an object. Once the mixture’s texture is said to be ‘amoureux’ – a tender expression alluding to the gentle kiss of humid lips – it is ready to receive the gold leaf. Each gold leaf is applied by hand for a unique and irreplaceable patina. Once the leaf has been applied, it cannot be removed. Absolute perfection is required first time round. The Gold Phantom Opera edition has been created using moongold, a precious and stainless palladium-yellow gold alloy.
