Emulsion is proud to be one of this year’s 15 architects, and we have been paired with the French skincare brand L’Occitane to design a window display to showcase a new product whose key ingredient is the everlasting Immortelle flower. Taking a cue from the dramatic terrain of Corsica, habitat of the Immortelle, we have created a landscape of ephemeral geometric layers, to intrigue, frame and reveal.
The layers of acetate are printed with triangular patterns, shifting and forming precise and complex visual patterns – inspired by geometry found in nature. The project was realised the help of En Masse Bespoke and Richard Aldridge Lighting, and we are indebted to the generous sponsorship of printing & graphics specialists The Graphical Tree.
The installation is on display between 1 September and 8 October 2014 at L’Occitane’s Regent Street store.
For London Design Festival 2014, The Apple Store Regent Street are hosting a Pecha Kucha with all the architects and a walking tour:
