Philippe Di Méo, founder and designer of Les liquids Imaginaries, is inspired by the recognition that every surrounding scent affixes permanently to our memories. This year he created ‘Indélébile’ as the Tranoï interactive installation, housed in a ‘perfume spray booth.’ Visitors create a permanently marked, unique, blue fragrance spray-paint mix onto white fabric t-shirts and carry away an indelible memory which is both tangible and olfactive. I love mine, even though it did wash out with my ‘super-duper’ vanish laundry soap!

Slow is a story about objects and lifestyle as well as perfume. It combines handcrafted paper notebooks with organic fragrance to offer olfactory storytelling of one’s own design, as well as offering covers of classics, such as Romeo and Juliet and La Divina Comedia. Great gift ideas; have a look.

Below is a slow sculpture by Quentin Canaille, a young artist who develops relationships between his passions: architecture and design. He is increasingly exploring the notion of time, querying themes like infinity, relativity, the ruin, or the origin of time and astronomy. This  spinning, hovering, magnetic object is the sort of contemporary art to delight and engage all ages.

As promised last week, a closer look at the ideas and projects by Piet Hein Eek of the Netherlands. These include objects which are discarded, mundane, daily and unorthodox.  This project shows creativity spanning furniture, innovative design, architecture and fine art in the displays of lighting, ceramics, timepieces, furnishings, etc.

An abandoned Phillips Factory redesigned and converted into a restaurant and  workshops serves innovation, design and creation. Woodworking, metalwork, glassware, ceramics and fabrics are among the re-purposed materials with which independent artists create contemporary useful furnishings and decorative artful objects for home use.
