THE INFINITE RADIANCE PROJECT
THE INFINITE RADIANCE PROJECT
Founded in 1982, Clé de Peau Beauté celebrates forty years of craftsmanship, science and innovation with a commemorative artwork. Our fascination with radiance led us to a collaboration with UK-based light artist, Chris Wood. For over 20 years, Wood has honed her vision and crafted unique works on the singular ambition of expressing the phenomenon of light through the understanding of its science. As Wood so eloquently expresses, “The collaboration represents a true meeting of the minds”.
The piece, aptly named ‘40 x 40’, is built on like-minded principles and a mutual passion for expressing radiance in infinite ways. Based on the number 40, as well as the science of Fibonacci’s golden ratio, its masterful design reflects Clé de Peau Beauté’s signature scientific approach to beauty. The specialness of the piece lies in its constantly evolving light, echoing our infinite potential collectively, as well as the brand’s evolution over time. Reflecting both the past and the future, ‘40 x 40’ is an homage to Clé de Peau Beauté’s future-focused philosophy: always looking forward, inspired by the infinite possibilities of radiance.

A unique perspective on skin.
A defining theory in the same research field
as Nobel Prize-winning findings*
on information transmission
through the cell membrane.
Clé de Peau Beauté scientists believe that skin has an intuitive ability to recognize,
and respond differently to,
positive stimuli versus negative stimuli.
That it has an autonomic ability
to detect, identify,
and act on its own,
independent of the brain.
