DESIGN FOR LUXURY & CRAFTSMANSHIP
Collaboration with Francis Kurkdjian
with Jaime Hayon
For the very first collaboration with Parisian perfumer Francis Kurkdjian, the students of the programme were given carte blanche to revisit the codes of the eponymous house and find a new way of linking materials with the world of fragrances. Following a research and experimentations, some concepts were developed and prototyped in order to create a collection of olfactory objects: perfume diffusers made of rattan, fans made of brass and paper or a family of ceramic culbutos.
