The conclusion of Soundlight Evolution project
In recent days we finished the project "Soundlight Evolution, funded by the public body Sardegna Ricerche, carried out in collaboration with the University of Sassari. The starting idea was to implement an already developed multisensory technology, widening its scope of application for the most varied contexts of architectural spaces: museums, live events, retail, home, malls, spa and wellness. A new technology named Synesthes-Ear, has been developed in the scope of this project. Synesthes-Ear captures the ambient sound transforming it, in real time, in light and colors transitions, allowing an easy customization of the architectural spaces . Everything has been integrated in several prototypes, with fragrance diffusion, to offer a multisensory experience at the user
Before and following the technological development, a scientific activity has been carried out about the analysis of the state of the art concerning multisensory and in order to validate the implemented technologies. The analysis of the state of the art has led to the creation of a new planning format in the scope of interior design, named EBA (Evidence Based Approach), that saw the birth of a partnership with Flyproject, an interior design firm in Milan. Such a proposal includes that the designing and its components (e.g.: Sound, light, fragrances, materials) has to be harmonized and scientically validated, with the aim to promote the wellness of the goers of the specific architectural space.
These concepts has been inspired by the beauty and the “Natural Wellness”, which is part of our environmental context: the Regional Natural Park of Porto Conte in Sardinia Island.
At the end of the project ,We would like to thank our olfactory partner Scentcompany for its support; the consultants: Indico Technlogies for lighting part, the psychologist and psychotherapist Laura Delitala for the scientific support and Eng.Mario Lera. Our acknowledgements also to Porto Conte Ricerche and its staff that hosts our head office and to Links Foundation that hosts one of our prototype in its headquarter in Turin, as an example of Open Innovation
