Bottle for Datsuzoku Fragrance based on the Japanese Wabi-sabi tenet of that same name.
Datsuzoku involves a transcendence of conventional ideas and traditional usage. The bottle was designed with this in mind. Focusing on the experience of handling and applying the product, rather than it’s form factor- the exterior material was created from adhering traditional japanese bookbinding cloth to the acrylic mold. The material was then sealed in a triple aqueous coating creating a surprising tension between a natural and artificial material set.
