So elegant, so graceful, so 'Unnecessarily Well Made'...
Glenmorangie has collaborated with celebrated design artist and architect Philip Micheal Wolfson to create an 'Unnecessarily Well Made' bar, SOUNDFORM FLUID. The beautiful art with a twist of modern edge was displayed at the North Atrium, The Gardens mall throughout the week before this but I only got to see it on Friday night during the party.
The SOUNDFORM Fluid Bar
"Just as Glenmorangie goes that extra mile in pursuit of their ultimate single malt whisky. Our works also come about through a labour of love which entails many hours of research and an attention to the details of each individual piece. I share their principles of a deep passion for innovation"
- Philip Micheal Wolfson
The concept of the SOUNDFORM Fluid bar is actually inspired by the sound of Glenmorangie whisky being poured into crystal glass. The sound is precisely measured on an oscilloscope and subsequently transformed into a plan for a physical object with a continuous steel and carbon fibre ribbon-shape with a structural central mirror finish metal panel and a painted aluminum exterior. The shape of the bar is the exact replication of a segment of the oscilloscope reading!
Isn't it amazing how it doesn't look anything like a bar from the top?
Also, aside from being a piece of design mastery, SOUNDFORM Fluid is a fully functionable with the finest build-in Elipson Planet L speakers and music centre, and a self-lighting mechanic in collaboration with Philips Color Kinetics.
Once again, we were treated to the wonders of Glenmorangie's The Original whisky throughout the night.

Not too long after looking around the area, we were invited to a Glenmorangie tasting session where we were taught to properly taste, sniff, analyze and observe three different Glenmorangie whiskies.
The Original, The Lasanta and Astar
While tasting, we were told to have creative and imaginative minds to properly capture the whisky's taste on your tastebuds. From fresh pears, to fruity flavors up to the flavors of the nature… I think I just have a really bad taste palate or that I wasn't creative enough :( I couldn't capture most of the descriptions he mentioned besides the delicious hint of Vanilla and the smooth sipping of the whiskies.
Among all, I would say I like The Original the best because it is so much easier to take in. Smoother, and the finishing taste doesn't really linger as much as the other two. The strongest scent would be The Lasanta while Astar, as I would call it the silent killer, is the one with the lightest color but personally to me, the strongest flavor that lingers the longest among all three.
Also, we were told that Astar is a limited edition Glenmorangie whisky as it's production will be stopped pretty soon.
With Xiang and friends.
Manufactured Superstars from USA, the DJs of the night at the after party!
Friendly and beautiful Glenmorangie ladies
After what's done and done, we made our way upstairs to Vertigo for Glenmorangie's after party where the music gets loud, the room gets darker and the Glenmorangie bottles keep coming!
The one thing I admire most about Vertigo after being there a couple of times is the crazy lived backdrop of the spinning table! It is so hypnotizing at times, I sometimes would rather stare at it all night long than to have conversations!
After such wonderful pampering from Glenmorangie, no wonder it is called 'Unnecessarily Well Made'.
