What We Do

About

Aïstimo’s work focuses on connecting technology with the world of scents. Our prime mission is to bring awareness to olfaction, with a special focus on joy and inclusivity.

We are particularly interested in the creative process and how the conditions under which it is conducted can be improved, but we also look at themes that are connected with this topic, such as embodiment, human performance and virtual identities.

Many insight studios investigate either user experience or customer experience. Aïstimo focuses on the human experience. We think that this allows a better emphasis on authenticity and inclusivity.

A Digital Rose

Exhibited in October 2020 at Helsinki City Museum during the Aavistus Festival. Accompanied by a real smell of a rose, this AR work pays homage to the great clubbing cities in the world during a year of mourning.

Traditional Crafts

The work, woven from natural fibers, honours traditional arts and crafts skills. It draws from centuries-old use of fragranced interior objects and rewards the maker during the creative process.
