100% Illusion by Robert Stadler
Robert Stadler is a talented Austrian designer. studied design at IED and at ENSCI in Paris. “He explores the exhibition space in order to scramble the usual categories of art and design. He questions the status of the object as a work of art or a product as well as the border between preciousness and lowliness, elegance and vulgarity, the serious and the absurd. Questioning the object’s identity or even provoking their dissolution, are fields of interest crossing most of his projects” – wikipedia. He collaborated with Hermès, the Cartier Fondation, the Cesar Academy and more recently with Le Grand Musée du Parfum (The Great Perfume Museum) in Paris for this pop_up exhibition “100% Illusion”.
Le Grand Musée du Parfum collaborated with Robert Stadler, the SNCF (national train company) to celebrate the recent opening of the museum (16th December 2016).
In this very busy place, these bells offer to people passing by a moment of serenity, a journey to the world of fragrances. Just pop your head in one of these bells and you will discover 5 different fragrance raw material:
- Amyl Vinyl Carbinol (earthy, green note)
- Lynalyl Acetate (Herbal, green, spicy note, it’s found in many flowers and is a key ingredient for Bergamot and Lavender essential oils)
- Camphor (green and pungent note)
- Coumarin (Smells like a mix between almonds, vanilla and freshly-mown hay)
- The last bell is the harmonious mix of these 4 ingredients to create a lavender accord.
