Best of Milan Design Week: New Spring, By London-based Studio Swine

A beautiful, bazaar multi-sensory perfumer.

Clothing brand COS partnered with Studio Swine in an artistic collaboration between Japanese architect Azusa Murakami and British artist Alexander Groves.

Studio Swine created an ephemeral, soothing tree-like installation with cascading bubbles made of water, air and vapor. The scented, mist-filled blossoms burst and evaporate upon contact with skin but live for a few moments when met with textured fabrics. The vapor disappears and leaves no footprint. The work sits inside Cinema Arti, a decommissioned former theatre located in the center of Milan.

Visitors are invited to put on gloves to interact with the bubbles as they drop from overhead. The installation is open to the public during Milan design week through Sunday.
