INSOMNIA at Pitti Fragranze, Florence - Italy

"Insomnia" installation, Pitti Fragranze in Florence, 8th September 2017 / 7.00AM

Naomi chose to use an empty space, as a medium, transforming it - in situ, by bringing together lights & objects - her own vision of a ‘nuit blanche’. The space is bought back to a blank canvas … 

Surrealistic techniques of psychic/compulsive writings & drawings from artists, such as Louise Bourgeois’s Insomnia Drawings’ inspired Naomi as a relevant expression of the nocturnal tuberose flower – obsessive, fresh, green, animalistic & addictive.

A few hand made original & unique silicone plants by Tzuri Gueta from ‘Noces Végétales’ are displayed in the suite, as a link to some aspects of the perfume.

UNE TOUCHE DE STYLE, Glen Proebstel

 

PERFECT  IMPERFECT, the beauty of accident, age & patina

An interior design book that embodies a philosophy of thoughtfulness & creativity in living.

Text by Karen McCartney, Photography Sharyn Cairns / Styling Glen Proebstel

Perfect Imperfect takes as its founding principle the Japanese concept of wabi-sabi, advocating the beauty to be found in imperfection, impermanence and the authentic. Importantly, this is done without losing sight of the benefits of living in the 21st century, where designers are merging digital technology with the handmade to produce items that combine the best of both worlds.
