lvnea mabon

Currently at Lvnea one may pre-order a very special, limited edition autumn box filled with seasonal offerings, grounding blends, and soothing scents to celebrate Mabon– a time when darkness is slowly beginning to reign and we are poised between the worlds of life and death, of light and dark.

Included in this lavish box of autumnal abundance one will find: Forest Roots Grounding Anointing Oil, Woodland Roots Chai Blend, Cherry Chai Aromatic Bitters, Tulsi Chai and Spruce Resin Infused Honey, Holy Basil and Spruce Smudge Spray, Roots and Resins Forest Butter, and Prosperity Spell Candles.

Considered a time of balance, it is when we stop and relax and enjoy the fruits of our personal harvests. We mourn that which is passing and celebrate that which is bountiful. We reflect on the past year and set intentions for the months forthcoming.

Mabon seasonal offering boxes pre-orders are now available for purchase at Lvnea. Boxes will ship early to mid-October. These limited edition items are only available as a set and once they are gone they’re gone for good.

flow/er: Synthetic Floral Synethsis by Alexa Sirbu and Lukas Vojir

Alexa Sirbu and Lukas Vojir Flower

We’re entranced by this phantasmagorical video created by designers Alexa Sirbu and Lukas Vojir with music by Zelig Sound. Entitled “flow/er“, the experimental CG short barely lasts 30 seconds, but that’s one of the amazing things about dreams. While in the mind of the dreamer they might feel as though they go on forever, as far as our brains are concerned they’re over in a flash.

Watch as swirling seas of dark particles collide to form dusky ornamental flowers that bloom until they burst into lush fractal formations. These organic forms and transmutations feel like animated versions of some of the wearable sculptures created by fashion designer Iris van Herpen.

From the artists: “In nature, it is often the simplest rules that lead to forming the most complex, beautiful forms. flow/er is a visual poem that observes this through a design lens, combining our fascination with organic, raw aesthetics with foreign graphic forms. We observe natural laws take shape in a strange dance of meticulous choreography clashing with violent forces of nature.”
