FUWA FUWA is a new series of perfume diffusers. For this project, Yusuké inspired from archaeological items on display in various museums, where the missing pieces are filled in using glass or transparent resin. The idea is to suggest the original shape of the object by showing a ceramic archaeologic remain that is preserved and crystallised in a glass. “My aim is to evoke a story that is crystallised in a perfume” – a scent that recalls a memory and can preserve a situation, an image or a moment in time by the very nature of what it serves to recollect.
