The partnership was born out of the companies’ mutual desire to harness the power of the virtual world in order to bring improvements to our everyday life, as well as expand the frontiers of innovation.
The first joint project, which is based on the analysis of light and already under way, is co-developed by Chanel Research and Technology and the Dassault Systèmes Design Studio. The aim is to validate new hypotheses and concepts in the beauty sector using virtual software solutions. The project will be finalized in 2010.
Other opportunities are also being explored, with an emphasis on virtual simulation and modeling that will pave the way for innovative breakthroughs in skin biology and cosmetics.
