When did mol­e­cules be­come neck­laces?

-

Cana­dian de­sign stu­dio Aroha Sil­hou­ettes has made neck­laces out of the molec­u­lar struc­tures of drugs. Headed by Ta­nia Hen­nessy, the De­signer Drugs Col­lec­tion in­cludes six nar­cotics — from stim­u­lants like dopamine and LSD, to caf­feine and to­bacco. Ac­cord­ing to De­sign Taxi, the neck­laces are made in stain­less steel and fin­ished with a matte black pow­der coat­ing with a gun- metal chain or un­coated with a sil­ver- plated chain. Each piece is uniquely rep­re­sented by sim­pli­fied rep­re­sen­ta­tions of their molec­u­lar struc­tures.
