Les modes de consommation évoluent et le secteur du parfum n’y fait pas exception.

Après le cushion du parfum Chance, lancé par Chanel en janvier aux US, c’est au tour de Kenzo de dévoiler son format nomade du Flower by Kenzo. Une simple pression sur le coussin permet de libérer une dose du gel encapsulé dans le boitier et de déposer la fragrance avec une sensation fraîche inédite.

Un boitier-bijou qui se glisse partout, même dans le bagage cabine pour l'avion.

Ultra maniable et intuitif, voici un packaging qui installe un nouveau geste dans l’univers de la parfumerie et casse les codes des mythiques flacons pulvérisateurs.

What is the link between internet protocols and human rights online

ARTICLE 19 and Coding Rights have launched Net of Rights, a short film which explores the link between internet protocols and human rights online.

It is too-often assumed that there is no link between protocols (the standards which underpin the way the internet functions) and human rights, but this is simply not the case, as this new film by ARTICLE 19 and Coding Rights argues.

The Internet aspires to be the global ‘network of networks’, providing connectivity for all users, at all times, for any content. Connectivity increases the capacity for individuals to exercise their rights, meaning that the architectural design of the internet is, necessarily, intertwined with the human rights framework.

See the website for more information, and the full film!

So interesting…
