About the project
"From our earliest moments as a species, we have taken minerals from the Earth to make art; in the form of pigments. In the future we might follow Nature’s example of structural colour - micro-surfaces reflecting light in specific ways - to continue creating vivid colours without depleting the Earth’s resources. With the colour blue historically being the last colour to appear in all human languages, we settled on the Morpho butterfly as our embodiment of this future. The shape of this trunk come from the magnified structures of the Morpho’s wings, interwoven with Vuitton’s monogram. 'The Structural Colour Box - Temple to Blue' is a blending of natural and manmade ingenuity."
