Selection of the Winners
On the occasion of this workshop and thanks to Boisbuchet's collaboration with MUDAC (Museum of Contemporary Design and Applied Arts, Lausanne, CH), we are launching the #OlFactoryContest on our Instagram - from today February 15th until March 15th which will invite 4 lucky ones to participate to the workshop for free!
The 4 winners will be selected by Studio Glithero, Boisbuchet and MUDAC and will be announced on March 22nd. Their pieces will be part of the scenography of a major exhibition at MUDAC about niche perfumery in 2018. Check the Terms & Conditions and participate now!
My prototype FUWAFUWA was inspired by the way archeological pieces are exhibited in museums, with their missing pieces being filled with glass or transparent resin showing the original form of the piece. This piece shows a ceramic archeological piece conserved and crystalized in a glass. This would recall a memory, crystallized in the odor of the perfume. A perfume retains a situation, an image, a past moment etc., through a sort of memory. The odor triggers the memory.
The porous ceramic part of this piece soaks up the parfume put in the glass and, then, it sends the perfume into the air to evaporate.
Évanescence - This scent diffuser plays with olfactory memory mechanisms and allows creating your own "madeleine de Proust". Read more on my website ! @boisbuchet #OlfactoryContest
TRAP is perfume circulation system, where colored perfume and air bubbles flows and plays through glass passages every time you take it, every time you turn it, every time you use it.
My entry to the #OlfactoryContest... a raspberry shaped vessel designed to allow a singular droplet of raspberry scented perfume onto the wrist. The spout does not release more than a single droplet at a time. I have included a few photos of the final piece and a video of one of my test pieces in the making. I twisted steel wire into a cage-like mould, blew hot glass into the mould and let the neck stretch into a thin spout... I would LOVE the opportunity to design other perfume vessels and further explore the complex nature of glass at @boisbuchet over summer!
