Dozens of pale blue balls made of felted wool hang from above. They are infused with a scent inspired by winter. Chimes wrapped inside the balls add gentle sound. A wool carpet underfoot releases glimmers of scent with each step. Scent has become an intentional element of interior design, offering a gateway to physical places and personal memories. Wool is a natural material that holds scent for a long time. Created by Christopher Brosius.
