Der Umgang mit Duft

Interaction with scent

The incentive dedicating a whole project to the topic of fragrance was that smell is intangible, but subconsciously has a great influence on us. The objects are designed as part of a ritual that can be performed alone or as a group. In different steps, the physical form of an object is removed leaving only its scent. The ritual is created by interacting with an object and its smell differently thus creating a deviation from the usual way of experiencing scent. The ritual invites people to pause and consciously deal with one aspect of an object in its entirety and through this creating a different perception of it and its meaning.
