How soothing it is to get a touch of powder pink and luminous transparencies in our gloomy winter right now!
Designer Cristina Celestino – founder of Italian design studio Attico – is back with this very beautiful new project called Olfattorio : a series of glass vases taking inspiration from the ‘arte profumatoria’, a discipline documented through the alembics used by perfumers to create fragrances.
“The project places the flower with its essence at the center of the composition. A sensory path that has the purpose of retaining and returning the odorous nature, impalpable and volatile by itself, with greater intensity. The glass ampoules are means to preserve and amplify the scent of the flower that lives its cycle in a protected atmosphere. The collection consists of a set of tools to smell flowers or aromatic essences. Volumes are composed of cylindrical bases with a filigree treatment and “olfactory” bubbles. The transparent bubble is placed on top of the textured cylindrical volume.” — Cristina Celestino
