For the new perfume for men, Van Cleef & Arpels in New York, Brandimage designed a bottle which is a tribute to the art deco architectural tradition of the city that never sleeps.
The perfume bottle designed as an architectural piece, made out of steel and glass, is “echoing the geometric force of Manhattan’s skyline and the inspiring ascending verticality of skyscrapers that together create this symbol of timeless elegance and urban creativity.”
Manhattan’s architecture guided Brandimage in the design of the bottle, consisting of a block of glass with a sleek geometrical design, circled with a steel rim. A gradient smoky grey glazing, reminiscent of the giant windows of the iconic skyline that reflect with force the lines and parallels of the intersecting streets and avenues formed by the perfect and inimitable geometry of New York. “The coldness of the glass contrasts with the softness of the rubber cap. The colour palette and the choice of materials express this peculiar harmony of glass, metal and tar, quintessentials of Manhattan,” adds the design agency.
