Morphologies

For the ancient Egyptians, beauty was a sign of holiness. Beauty and body care were an integral part of everyday life. Fascinated by the idea of cosmetics with a ritual purpose, Sarah-Linda Forrer designed facial skin care tools inspired by Egyptian beliefs and habits. Hardwood and Himalayan salt crystal are brought together with transparent rubber and sponge to become cleansing tools. Alabaster stone is shaped into a delicate, translucent spoon to mix oils and powders, lava stone morphs into soft sponge, and glimmering brass receptacles look like they belong on an altar. Beauty and spirituality become one, adding another dimension to skin care.
