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.
