What’s new in the world of design: November 2016

The past month has brought with it many collaborations between fashion labels, designers, artists and decor brands. From perfume bottles to wine labels, coffee cups to boutique windows, there really is no limit to how talented creatives can come together to create something truly unique…

Zuza Mengham for Laboratory Perfumes

This month we covered the London Design Festival, and it was there that fragrance maker Laboratory Perfumes showcased its collaboration with artist Zuza Mengham. Mengham interpreted the intangible fragrances of five different perfumes into resin sculptures, rich in colour and form. Brought about by Laboratory Perfumes’s idea that when “communicating the composition of a fragrance” they aren’t “restricted by the limits of language”, the result is colourful, tactile sculptures that embody the sensory journey of each scent.

Bromley & Co for Wolf Blass

Bromley by Wolf Blass‘ is a collaboration between Australian artist David Bromley (who we featured here) and South Australian winery Wolf Blass. The collection features some of Bromley’s most recognised art designs, printed onto the collectable series of labels. With extracts from Bromley’s Birds, Nudes and Butterflies series, we can enjoy two of life’s finest pleasures at once.

Levi van Veluw for Hermès New York Fall windows 

Dutch artist Levi van Veluw has again collaborated with luxury fashion house Hermès, this time designing window installations for its Madison Ave boutique in New York. Van Veluw created finely carved 3D wooden versions of Hermès’s famous silk scarves, turning each window into a geometric art-piece full of glamour and intricacy.

Emilio Pucci for illy

The Italian coffee company illy has launched its latest design collaboration in partnership with Italian fashion house Emilio Pucci. Famous for its geometric prints in kaleidoscopic colours, Pucci drew on its “Cities of the World” scarf designs from the late 1950s to inspire the coffee cup range. Each of the six designs represents an iconic fashion city from around the world.
