The design is based on the idea of making the scent tangible through the (playful) combination of sound, involving all senses. Sound, a key element of the project for the perfume, is inspired by Euterpe, the muse of music in Greek mythology.
The glass bottle is shaped like a bell, its upper part contains the scent and the lower part is empty. Using the bottle, the movement of the silver pendulum creates a little percussion on the bell. The movement comes with a sound as the perfume flows out.
Stine Gam, Danish architect with a master in furniture design and Enrico Fratesi, Italian architect graduated with a master in industrial design, gained experience as architects in several architecture studio in Japan and Scandinavia before establishing their own design studio in Copenhagen in 2006.
They draw on the classic Danish furniture and craft tradition as well as the classic Italian intellectual and conceptual approach. GamFratesi’s design takes its creative drive from a fusion of tradition and renewal and in an experimental approach to their chosen materials and techniques.
They aim to create furniture that illustrates the process and the techniques that created it, and which reflect a persistent exploration of the diverse border zone between harmony and disharmony.
