Scented Hive / Air Freshener

Scented Hive
Scented Hive

Scented Hive is designed to provide a new experience of using scented gel by
integrating LED light with honeycomb pattern. One of the most interesting property of scented gel is a transparency with color. Scented Hive is using a LED light to expose
ambient color through the gel, which appears as a honey. As a result, the honeycomb structure would become a lighting beehive that functions as a plug-light for the house.
Spreaded LED light through a scented gel is communicating to users about the spreading
scent around a room. Therefore, the use of light and scent with color becomes a harmony
of its function by design.
