Design Inspiration

Meet Dairy Curie, named in honour of Marie Curie, the first woman to receive the Nobel Prize in Chemistry.

The vibrant design is inspired by the brilliant minds of chemical scientists in Cambridge, whose world-leading research has changed our daily lives – from the discovery of DNA in our bodies to new batteries for our phones. The expressionist patterns reflect the importance of continuous experimentation within chemistry, showing how experiments combine for breakthroughs to take place. The results of this research are then shown on the surface design in the form of well-known technologies and symbols.

Chemistry is at the centre of everything you can see, smell, touch and taste. Whether studying the chemistry of life, or developing the advanced science behind modern technology, chemical scientists use their expertise to improve our health, our environment and our daily lives.

Since 1841, the Royal Society of Chemistry has been connecting scientists from all over the world, helping them share their knowledge to spark the new ideas and partnerships that make discoveries and innovation happen.
