Cognac bottle designed by Frank Gehry features in today's Dezeen Weekly newsletter

The latest edition of our Dezeen Weekly newsletter features a gold cognac bottle designed by Frank Gehry for Hennessy X.O.

Readers have questioned the design process behind the 24-carat gold-dipped bronze, which Gehry hopes is unlike "anything people have seen before".

One commenter was enamoured however, exclaiming: "Gehry's gone Gangsta! This bottle of 'Henny' will surely appear in every rap music video – it's tack-o-licious and I love it!"
