Hydra

Perfume Bottle

Client: Lalique Foundation

Brief: Design a perfume bottle that is inspired by Lalique's legacy in contemporary formal language and technology.

Lalique's Tierra style perfume bottle mastered the relationship between positive and negative space...

Hydra is the contemporary interpretation Inspired by René Lalique's Tierra style perfume bottles, which shows the negative space of the top and body in a three dimensional way. The body is hand blown glass and the top is cast glass aided by digital 3D modeling. Hydra is the serpent-like monster in Greek mythology that has many heads. It said two heads will grow if one gets cut off. The success in the technical challenge and the mythological reference both allude to female power that can be brought by the right perfume.
