Alexander McQueen Oversized Perfume Bottle
Every element of the McQueen experience is hand-crafted and meticulous – as demonstrated by the beauty of the beguiling fragrance flacon. An object d’art, intricate antique gold feathers – a signature of the house, envelop the crown of the bottle, topped with an exquisite facetted cap then based with gold. A stunning dress-table jewel for all fans of the House of McQueen.
Malcolm Nicholls Limited (MNL) was asked by a creative design consultancy to create an oversized perfume bottle that was going to be used as a display piece in one of Harrod’s display windows.
MNL were supplied 3D data in the form of an STL file. MNL 3D printed the bottle and the neck feathers using Stereolithography as this prints in the best resolution and is a better process for crispness of detail such as the feathers. The 3D printed bare model was supplied unfinished, at the customer’s request. Three off of each component were required; these were all built together maximizing the build platform also enabling MNL to turn the project around in only two days.
