Studying the relationship between human perception and the products

Orfield Labs, said Orfield, is the nation’s only multi-sensory design and research laboratory. It works in architecture, research and product development, studying the relationship between human perception and the products and spaces it uses every day. About 10 years ago, they expanded their research into cognitive and perceptual disabilities, and now they specialize in creating spaces more agreeable for people with — to name just a few examples — autism, or PTSD, or ADHD or dementia.

Random sensory quotes

“The only way of expressing emotion in the form of art is by finding an ‘ojective correlative’, in other words, a set of objects, a situation, a chain of events which shall be the formula of the ‘particular’ emotion; such that when the external facts, which must teminate in sensory experience, are given, the emotion is immediately evoked.”

— T.S. Eliot
