Scent / Sauna / Home Appliance


Providing the aromas of nature, this luxury water accessory transports the user to a place of serenity during their moments of free time. Reflecting its history, the material used in SCENT will reveal polished steel with the passage of time. These qualities will transform SCENT into a luxurious companion in the sauna, and a way to both create and store memories.
Through the use of water’s physical states, SCENT can be used either to emit scented steam or water. The smooth curvature of the base alludes to the fluid state of the water, completing the form as a reflection of the process.
