Present moments

A relaxing ritual for children.


Our house, the spring, a pie in the oven, the laundry drying, a freshly picked strawberry – we are surrounded by scents. We aren’t always aware of it, but those scents have a great impact on our emotional lives. They are directly connected to our emotional memory, and that is why the scent of a cookie can bring us back to the happiness of a childhood memory. Can you design that connection between scent and memory? That was Jonas Bähr’s design challenge. Jonas aimed to create a design that allows people to approve their moods by means of scent.
