Interior design hub The Invisible Collection launches a collaboration with parfumerie Maison Diptyque today. The collection pays tribute to Diptyque’s roots, with its three creators having been explorers at heart. Craftsman Yves Coueslant, artist Desmond Knox-Leet, and interior designer Christiane Gautrot traveled the world, seeking the most unique objects and materials to bring otherworldly scents, originality, and craftsmanship to the forefront of their brand.
While Diptyque is now known as a premiere fragrance label, the brand began as a boutique for objets d’art. Its appreciation for eclectic and one-of-a-kind rarities is reflected in the collaboration with The Invisible Collection. Closely working with skilled designers, Diptyque created an offering of opulent table settings and candle holders, integrating whimsical modernity with artisanal traditions. Co-founder of The Invisible Collection Isabelle Dubern-Mallevays was instrumental in this collaboration, as she previously served as Diptyque’s artistic adviser.
The collection of homewares embodies the laid-back atmosphere of the Mediterranean, with its alfresco dining and calm, effortless lifestyle, taking us on a much-needed, immersive journey, harnessed through interior design. The opulent collaboration evokes the spirit of summer in both Italy and France, conjuring the scents and hues of the South, from Puglia to Luberon.
Along with influence from Diptique’s heritage, the collaboration fuses the visions of two long-time friends of The Invisible Collection, Atelier Vime and Osanna Visconti. Vime designed a series of pieces in rattan, including a set of covetable candle jars, while Visconti is responsible for those designed in bronze. Two sets of hand-painted glasses and carafes were crafted by legendary glassmakers Lobmeyr, and vibrant handmade dining plates were decorated by the renowned Laboratorio Paravicini.
The Diptyque x The Invisible Collection is now available online.END
