Art In Motion
Inspired by Samsara, the Sanskrit word for “wandering” or “world”, Sandsara is a kinetic sand sculpture with a metal sphere that traces patterns across a bed of sand to create works of art that change throughout the day.
It comes with an iOS and Android app, from which you can program the sculpture, choose the patterns, as well as customise your own design. Crafted with solid wood and available in either a circular or star-shaped frame, it imparts a meditative and artistic quality to your space.
The Sandsara project starts at $8,780 (S$506) on Kickstarter and is due to ship in August 2020.
If you need a calming sensorial experience on the daily, be sure to pay Le Labo’s flagship boutique, which opened in Takashimaya Shopping Centre earlier this year, a visit.
For candle lovers, the fragrance brand’s hand-poured soy-based wax candles with pure cotton wicks come in ten fragrances, from the brand’s ubiquitous Santal 33 with a gentle smoky and leathery scent, to the sea-inspired Calone 17, and the fresh, aromatic blend of Verveine 32 with kaffir lime, eucalyptus, galbanum and violet leaves.
The Classic candle retails at S$110, the Vintage candle at S$95, and the Santal 26 in a concrete vessel starts from S$140 for a set of three mini votive candles, available at #B1-31, Takashimaya Shopping Centre.
