Christophe Laudamiel: Design for the Invisible

There are hundreds of fragrances out on the market that bear familiar names like “Dior,” “Calvin Klein,” “Dolce&Gabbana” and so on. But there are only a handful of perfumers who are capable of creating the scents for theses brands. Christoph Laudamiel is one of these elite ‘noses’.

What makes Laudamiel very different from the rest of the elite noses is his broad and futuristic vision for perfumery. Unlike fashion, the world of fragrance is old fashion and formal. Innovative ideas and projects are hardly coming out except from this iconoclastic mind.

The video was taken at MOMA in April.

Jeff Koons Versailles

The major retrospective on Jeff Koons, the star of the ’80s Neo-Geo movement, opened at the Château de Versailles a few weeks ago. The exhibition runs until December 14, 2008.

If you are visiting Paris this year, don’t be lazy, go to Versailles first. Viewing a great American artist’s work in an environment with an incomparably rich history could be your once-in-a-lifetime experience.

She’s back…

A late ’70s icon who was the inspiring muse of creative minds like Jean-Paul Goude and Issey Miyake is back with a new album Hurricane due out in October.

Zaha x Melissa


The Brazilian shoemaker Melissa, known for their collaborations with some of the hottest designers from different fields, teamed up with Zaha Hadid this time. They built a massive sculpture of the shoe to show off the design (video below).

 

The video reminds me a lot of what I used to do when I was a more productive and constructive person. My old studios in DUMBO looked quite similar to what you see here. Those are the good old days.
