The history of botany and the revelation of its rare and precious secrets, has always been a part of Aboca’s project: the diffuser’s floral decorations are taken from The Botanist (Phalaenopsis amabilis (L.) Blume) and from Franciscus De Geest’s Hortus Amoenissimus (Rosa rubiginosa L. 'Subplena').
The Botanist was released between 1836 and 1842 by Benjamin Maund, a renowned English botanist and member of the Linnean Society of London. The finely coloured lithographs were made by some of the most talented English designers and engravers of the 19th century and accompanied by exhaustive notes on the cultivation of the species portrayed. The original volumes from which the images were taken belong to the Bibliotheca Antiqua of Aboca Museum.
The Hortus Amoenissimus, the most beautiful florilegium of the 17th century Baroque, contains over two hundred illustrations of flowers and even today it amazes in the vibrancy of its colours. The reproduction of the manuscript, curated at the National Central Library of Rome, was edited and published by Aboca Edizioni.
The "Sphaera" diffuser is available in three different variants (the names given refer to the predominant flower in each of the compositions):
