London Design Festival 2016: London artist Zuza Mengham has created an exhibition of crystal-shaped resin sculptures as a physical interpretation of Laboratory Perfumes‘ range of scents.
Mengham based each brightly coloured sculpture in the exhibition, titled Sculpting Scent, around the brand’s gender-neutral fragrances.
This includes scents like Atlas, containing notes of pipe tobacco alongside rum, vanilla and hay.
Mengham interpreted the different compositions of the fragrances as contrasting colours, angles and visual effects using resin.
She shows citrus scents as clear yellow, and layers translucent resin over speckled, slate-coloured sections to reflect combinations of notes.
The artist has also created pieces with internal patterns that resemble smoke, bubbles, and ink dropped into water. Transparent and opaque sections are placed alongside one another to create light and colour effects.
To me, those sculptures seem to be the perfect encapsulation of scent! Yours, Fran
