Designer Vs Chanel No.5

Al Sabah Gallery / Villamoda / Kuwait / 2009
Bespoke project for Chanel, coordinated by Al Sabah Gallery


Al-Sabah Art&Design, Kuwait invited Satyendra Pakahlé, to create a personal unique product concept for the ‘I Love Souk’ Gallery Store using the classic Chanel No: 5 perfume bottle.
Pakahlé says, “I really wanted to celebrate the Chanel No:5 as it has great historic significance; by creating an ‘altar’ for the bottle that hopefully will last long. We used bronze- earthy heavy material that will make the user aware of her/his existence by daily ritual of using the perfume with this special ‘altar’ like stand for this iconic perfume bottle: Chanel No: 5.
It is made using state of the art, ‘CAM’ - computer aided manufacturing process.”
