Hosted by DNA Partners & Umbrella Furniture

In early Spring 2023 we invited Architects and Designers to join us at a series of unique Sensory Workshops with our partners Fora Form & Ragnars and perfumer Jessica Hannan from Apotheke. Guests were given a chance to learn about scents in public spaces, the history of how scent has evolved in hospitality and workplaces, and how it can be used to enhance the experience of your designs. There was also an opportunity to view and learn more about the installation at Umbrella by Fora Form and Ragnars.


“At Fora Form and Ragnars we prioritise multiple senses as part of our product design. Our designs work with all elements of the environment to enhance your space and create more productive outcomes for people. We hope our guests will enjoy this experience in olfactory exploration.”
