Chanel at the Saatchi Gallery


The Mademoiselle Privé exhibition at the Saatchi Gallery was a glamorous, interactive exhibition showing the House of Chanel’s creative journey. We worked on two areas of the showcase exhibition.

In the Diamond Structure room, we created a cave-like structure out of two curved timber walls and a steel space frame roof. The external texture of the structure was designed to resemble a rough-cut diamond, in contrast with the polished jewels on display inside.

Chanel No. 5, the first fragrance named after a fashion designer, appeared in a laboratory-like room. We manufactured 14 gold-lidded wells which each contained one of the perfume’s individual ingredients, such as Jasmine and May rose. Around a metre in diameter, the gold tanks concealed audio speakers, whirlpool water features and a smoke machine that filled the lid cavity with smoke. Once opened, smoke drifted out accompanied by bubbling sound effects, revealing swirling liquid of different colours.
