Blooming Newforms: the new theme for Fragranze 2017
Blooming, the passage from bud to flower, from the still-uncertain to a finished and perfect state: blooming in the sense of transformation, the most suitable metaphor for the artisan craft of the person who, starting with subtle and impalpable sensations, ends up creating precious substances, products that are concrete yet at the same time difficult to define with words, like fragrances. Blooming Newforms presents a new dimension of the world of fragrances made up of digitally inspired visual shapes, devised for contemporary social network platforms and the public of digital natives, that transform into the things we see living and moving around on the screens of our devices. A theme that will be visually played out by the shapes created for Fragranze by the graphic designer Diego Soprana and staged in the layouts by architect Alessandro Moradei.
