Beauty... what It would be without senses - if we were not able to see, to hear, to feel and to touch... Just a word - letters put in order. It is so unrealistic, subjective, deceptive, elusive but worthwhile and deserves everything. It is everywhere, but happens that we could never set eyes on It, we could clash in it but not being able to appreciate It. We should open our souls, taking all of It using our senses, indulging to It every little piece of ourselves - for The Beauty...
Antheia is a concept about a lamp, which goes beyond functionality of lighting, but touches human's sensibility in a new way. In the heart of the project is the bulb used, which on first look is an ordinary energy saving bulb, but it's modified by coating it with a substance containing perfume. When the lamp is on, the surface of the bulb warms up and the perfume starts to emit. The form of the body could be associated with flower but it was born as result of the idea about the aroma bulbs. For giving the customers, opportunity of choosing their own "bouquets", bulbs could be offered separately, each with different color and suitable aroma.
* the bulb design used for developing the project is a product of Phillips Inc.
