Here at Pairfum London we don’t like the idea of ‘Robot Flowers’, as it feels ‘unnatural’ and we would expect them to lack ‘fragrance’.
And yet, we were intrigued by “Studio Drift’s” installation of a ‘hanging bouquet’ of robotic flowers that bloom, as you approach them.
18 mechanical flowers have been choreographed to work in unison as part of a kinetic installation during Dutch Design Week 2018.
The meadow is meant to be an upside down landscape and intends to remind the visitor of the impermanence of changing seasons and the characteristics of natural growth processes.
In other words, the elements we like about nature.
We do find it novel but rather unusual, to use Robots to remind us of the beauty of nature.
Clearly the installation is missing fragrance!
