Lille Métropole 2020 World Design Capital

The Secrets of Perfume exhibition explores all the facets of the perfume bottle, presenting both content and container, the bottle, its history and design. Over one hundred objects will be on display…

The town of Lambersart is embarking upon the adventure of the World Design Capital, around the theme of sensory design. The Colysée, one of the Maisons Folie, is hosting an exhibition on the perfume bottle in partnership with the International Perfume Museum in Grasse. 

Over a hundred objects from the Museum’s collections will be on show, from ancient bottles to chemists’ equipment, as well as prototypes by designers and interactive olfactory devices. A special area will be set up just for families, with games, workshops and a reading corner based on the sense of smell, as well as a dedicated space for perfume makers Galimard, a partner of the exhibition.

As usual at the Colysée, the exhibition will be accompanied by a host of activities, including workshops, lectures, screenings and storytelling, offering visitors all kinds of approaches to the subject of sensory design and a true sensory immersion !
