Quote of Note | Arik Levy

“Think of geologists in Alaska who cut every section of a block of ice. It’s cut, but it’s still pure. Nothing is lost. There’s no useless glamour, nothing you can add or take from it….You don’t see any trace of molds or cut shapes. It’s a techno-poetic project that took us two and a half years. It’s 100 percent technology but 100 percent poetry at the same time.”

Arik Levy, who worked with glass engineers to design the completely transparent bottle for Issey Miyake‘s latest fragrance, A Scent by Issey Miyake.
