LMAKbooks+design draws its impetus from the desire to provide a new platform for art-related thinking and functionality. It presents design within the realm of the fine arts from artists who develop design objects out of their studio practice, and designers who push their ideas into the visual arts. Our publications vary from artist zines and limited-run small press publications to texts that explore the work of international writers and critical thinkers in the arts. As we showcase new designs, which explore the themes such as light and its sources, ceramics, textiles and more, every three months, you are bound to happen upon something you love. Each item’s characteristics will bring a unique experience to your home, gift-giving or reading.

Evocative encounters. Sensorial Journeys. Existing or imaginary worlds.
Can I tie myself to the poetry of a cloud?

LMAKbooks+design is excited to present an olfactory installation premiering Ici & Là, the fourth fragrance of the ATTACHE-MOI collection, conceptualized by Olivia Bransbourg. For Ici & Là, Bransbourg collaborated with renowned perfumer Shyamala Maisondieu and artist Marie-Luce Nadal.

In 2006, Bransbourg and perfumer Christine Nagel created a formula around an editorial project; unfortunately, it was lost. Luckily, a remainder of a bottle helped perfumer Shyamala to reinvent it. It is a perfume that represents fluidity of time, personal and geographical wanderings: here and there (Ici & Là). Inspired by the idea of scent and its flow, artist Marie-Luce Nadal created a series of Clouds in Flasks. The artist captures on her journeys particles of clouds and electric residue of thunderstorms, which she then reduces to extracts in order to reproduce them infinitely. In the gallery there will be an intimate installation of olfactory pillars, photographs, video, and a mural. The viewer will be invited to accompany this unique experience linking the tangible and intangible.

Exclusively for this exhibition Olivia Bransbourg and Marie-Luce Nadal created a limited edition of ATTACHE-MOI’s Ici & Là, which will be premiered at the gallery during the opening. The ATTACHE-MOI perfumes: Attache-Moi; Attache-Moi 55; It was a Time and Ici & Là will be available at the gallery and can be pre-ordered, please contact info@lmakbooksanddesign.com

LMAKbooks+design is housed on the second floor of LMAKgallery.
