Aura Tropicale


A series of scent diffusers made from an extruded ceramic material usually used for filtering exhaust fumes in cars, motorcycles and trucks.

The ceramic substrate is dip-dyed, shaped and then impregnated with scent.  As the ceramic is not fully fired, the end product is porous enough to soak up scented oils, but releases the fragrance slowly over a period of up to three days.

Aura Tropicale was created for The Alchemists, an exhibition of work by 15 Singaporean design studios that was on show at the Triennale di Milano design museum during Milan Design Week 2015.
