Creative Pick: 2017 Muse Creative Awards Platinum Winner: Verner Panton Panthella Mini by Frame.dk, Denmark

Muse Panthella Mini 01

Company : Frame.dk

Client: Louis Poulsen

Project Title : Verner Panton Panthella Mini

Category : Video

Country : Denmark

When we were asked by Louis Poulsen to create a spot for a lamp designed by Verner Panton, we couldn’t contain our excitement! We are big fans of Panton’s style, so it was a great pleasure to work with one of his designs. The “Panetella Mini” lamp is a smaller version of the original Panthella lamp, launched in 1971. The Panthella Mini features a metal shade and comes in 11 delicious colours.

Muse Panthella Mini 05

The legendary Danish designer Verner Panton is known for his use of powerful colours, organic shapes and unconventional materials – designing everything from furniture to full art installations that looked, and probably felt, like an acid trip. Unsurprising, when you think that he completed a lot of his work in the 60’s. As a starting point, we investigated Panton’s aesthetic universe and commenced designing a tour de force of lamps, eye popping colours and abstract shapes, inspired by the man himself. We were also encouraged by Louis Poulsen to give it our own personal touch so we had the freedom to interpret the unique style of Verner Panton with a unique twist and establish a lighter, more contemporary tone.

Muse Panthella Mini 03

In the end, it was all about creating something warm, happy, alive, intelligent and playful – just like Panton himself. To create a setting for the lamps to shine (no pun intended) and allow the focus to remain on these beautifully designed objects.

2016 Vega Digital Awards Canopus Winner: La Mer Part 2 by Psyop, United States

Vega Awards - Lamer

Company : Psyop

Project Title : La Mer Part 2

Client: Estee Lauder

Category : Online Video | Animation

Country : United States

La Mer Part 2 is inspired by light and the transforming effect it has to surfaces. This element of change is magical to us, from the spectacular colorful displays of a sunrise, to the northern lights, to the illumination of light on the surface of water or ice and even beyond the surface. Inspired by Dr. Max Huber, we tell a story of one traveler who represents us all.

Lamer Muse Awards

“I am enough of an artist to draw freely upon my imagination. Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.” – Albert Einstein

Vega Awards - Lamer

Director Marie Hyon on creating for Estee Lauder:

“In the spirit of Albert Einstein, we wanted to create a film that will challenge our imagination. We love the story of Dr. Max Huber and the myth behind his journey to find the cure to heal his burnt skin. We believe the myth is more powerful than the reality. Our film focuses on the poetic legendary tale rather than the reality and its facts. Besides, reality leaves nothing to the imagination. For the first La Mer film, we focused on introducing Dr. Max Huber and telling his story. For the follow up film, we focus mainly on the fascination of exploring the unknown.

Lamer Muse Awards

Curiosity is the key to staying young. And the wonders of nature inspire the curious ones to seek out its secrets, and question what is beyond or beneath the surface. La Mer Part 2 is inspired by light and the transforming effect it has to surfaces. This element of change is magical to us, from the spectacular colorful displays of a sunrise, to the northern lights, to the illumination of light on the surface of water or ice and even beyond the surface. Inspired by Dr. Max Huber, we will tell a story of one traveler who represents us all.”

Muse-Awards-Passion-Film-India

Company :  Passion Film

Project Title : Shakti Bhog Brand Film: Celebrating The Spirit Of Philately

Category : Corporate Image

Country : India

Shakti Bhog Foods Limited, is a company that was born out of the deep concern to provide hygienic staple food to the people. Its main business lies in the production of Wheat and Rice. After all before gaining independence in 1947 from the British, India was a land of princely states and kingdoms without a proper national identity. Even after independence, India is culturally diverse in terms of its people, languages and traditions.

POSTAGE STAMPS with its wide usage came as a solution to be used as communication tools across the length and breadth of the nation. Issued by Post & Telegraphic Office nationally, STAMPS through their engraved imagery successfully communicated the Planning Commission’s initiatives with respect to food and agricultural policies.

Muse-Awards-Passion-Film

Building on this historical and cultural legacy, Postage Stamps have been adopted in the telling the story of Shakti Bhog in this film. The film tells this journey in an innovative way celebrating the spirit of ‘Philately- the study of stamps and postal cards’.
