AOIRO and Studio Corkinho introduce a contemporary purifying ritual that offers a quiet moment to unwind in everyday life and uncover your authentic soul. It is an artistic collaboration of their unique specialities: an olfactory design for space and atmosphere and an exploration of object design with cork . The result is a serene ceremony set composed of natural essences, uniquely treated cork and other carefully sourced, earthy materials.
‘ Listening’ to the scent allows your senses to be infused and to experience it with one’s entire being. Based on a philosophy derived from Khodo - the Japanese ceremony of appreciating a subtle and exquisite fragrance - Aoiro has been exploring a different way of using scent as an olfactory experience in space.
Studio Corkinho completes the scent with two ceremony sets: one with nine cubic cork sculptures, another with one bigger cork pillar. Exploring the unique and raw, organic surfaces of burnt cork, each object offers a diffusion ground, on which the Hakudo Rain botanical essence can be dripped . The sets brings a personal ritual into our private space as a sensory experience that stimulates and harmonizes our presence, offering stillness and mindful.
