Pigmentarium Murmur

MURMUR

A fragrance that, like a whisper, floats on a cloud of mystery. The unmissable, monumentally seductive, fusion of oud, ambergris, and sandalwood is complemented by damask rose and a sensual charge of pulsating musk and civet.

THE SEMLER RESIDENCE

Pigmentarium collaborated with photographic artist Hana Knizová for the Murmur campaign, which was shot in the iconic Semler Residene in Pilsen.

The Semler Residence is the only example of a multilevel apartment based on the Raumplan concept. The building was constructed in 1923, remodelled internally in 1930 by architect Adolf Loos and apprentice Heinrich Kulka, to become the iconic residence of Oskar and Jana Semler.

Raumplan is a concept of seamlessly linking spaces of different heights – open spatial connections, complex spatial structures, with differing heights and levels. It was devised by renowned Austrian and Czechoslovakian architect Adolf Loos.

The Semler Residence interior comprises six main levels. It represents a revolution in the thinking and work of renowned architects of the twentieth century Adolf Loos and his pupil and collaborator, Heinrich Kulka.

One of the lesser-known principles that architect Adolf Loos adhered to when furnishing interiors, is forming a harmonious seating area with different chairs. He would place chairs of different shapes and upholstery to complement each other as a celebration of non-conformity.

The external appearance of the residence was never of any importance to Loos – he found the thoughts of passers-by quite irrelevant. The facade simply keeps the rooms from spilling out into the street. It is not apparent from the external of the building what lies inside, which is a theme throughout Loos’ designs.

MEET THE BRAND

Pigmentarium

Pigmentarium is a Czech fragrance house founded in 2018 by creative duo Tomas Ric and Jakub F. Hiermann. Jakub trained in perfumery in London before returning to his home city of Prague. Born from a passion for the profound stories that can be conveyed through scent, the name of the brand refers to the world of painting and the Latin inscriptions that dot the façades of Prague’s main buildings. Their olfactory creations are narratives captured in bottles – blending the finest ingredients with the art of perfumery.

Each fragrance is related to an artist or a cultural discovery. Pigmentarium does not see itself as a perfume brand, because it is focused on the art of living; it is a platform that also connects Czech artists and craftspeople to highlight the treasures of Prague.
— Tomas Ric, co-founder & CEO

The rich cultural history of Czech literature, music, and architecture, as well as the famous avant-garde movements, are channelled in the Pigmentarium fragrances. The brand regularly collaborate with contemporary artists from different fields, for example, Genesis was released with a series of photographs of Prague interiors by photographic artist Hana Knizová, in collaboration with an exhibition of artworks by sculptor Tereza Štětinová.

The brand’s latest collaboration took inspiration from the fine arts, leading to the limited-edition Prague Olibanum incense sticks. Contemporary Czech painter, Lucie Jindrák Skrivánková, designed the visual concept of the product, which evokes the scent of Prague’s old world. She worked with black, matte textures and gold decoration, giving a unique experience to the touch and representing the extravagance of the city and the brand.

Pigmentarium continue to collaborate with international artists, including poet Michaela Fenkl, sculptor Pauline Hagant, and fashion designer Arturo Obegero, all of whom have become ambassadors for the brand.

Sustainability, ethical practice, and locally driven thinking are the company’s core. The fragrances are produced by hand in the Pigmentarium atelier in Czechia, and the packaging is made by Studio Činčera, a family-owned company in Prague.
