As part of the 2019 HotelTonight Design Residency, curated by Sight Unseen, Chen Chen has created a one-of-a-kind object inspired by a weekend stay in Portland, Oregon. During his trip, Chen gathered rose petals and pine sap to create a sculptural scent diffuser, with woodsy and floral notes that recall the Pacific Northwest. All proceeds from its sale will be donated to the Equal Justice Initiative, a non-profit that provides legal representation to prisoners who may have been wrongly convicted of crimes.
Materials: Vines, grass, shoe laces, rose petals, pine sap, charcoal* Measurements: 14"x 2"
*Vines and rose petals were not harvested from live plants.
