Window installation, Regent Street, London

Our award-winning window installation for Penhaligon’s drew on the rich history of perfume making and its origins in distillation and chemistry. Inspired both by the evocative fragrances and the raw ingredients from which they are extracted, we proposed a labyrinthine construction of blown glassware, held within a three-dimensional lattice of copper pipe. The glass vessels contained the raw ingredients of Penhaligon’s thirty two fragrances while the copper referenced the first ambelic retorts and other distillation apparatus that were historically used in perfume making. The installation received an RIBA Award for the Best Window Installation on Regent Street, 2014.
