Inaccessible Perfume is not a functional project.It's purely conceptual.
Perfume is not just liquid.It translates the brand identity in a work of Art, Design & Architecture.
Francesca Gotti, product designer of oneofthose , recently collaborated with Aybar Gallery (Miami, Floria) on Inaccessible Perfume, a conceptual olfactory design project to be presented at Art Basel Miami Beach this December (12/1 – 4, 2016).
"Oneofthose is an olfactory design project strongly iconic for the packaging : an hermetic polystyrene shell which must be broken to reach the bottle. An external silent, rigorous, neutral packaging that takes on a unique and identifying shape when opened.
Further, we decided to create a limited edition of three oneofthose boxes that could become a personal object, a collectible item or a piece of art, where the perfume and the olfactory memory remain as the linking thread of the design.
Our idea is to faithfully reproduce the original product: the perfume will be hidden inside but not easily reachable because of the material. We decided to use glebanite, a recycled material which is very similar to stone and, unlike polystyrene, doesn’t allow the experience of a breakage, so the scent remains the mysterious content,” shared the Artist.

When are humans most happy? To gather data on this question, Matt Killingsworth built an app, Track Your Happiness, that let people report their feelings in real time. Among the surprising results: We're often happiest when we're lost in the moment. And the flip side: The more our mind wanders, the less happy we can be.
