Hakudo Rain Cork Diffuser Set
A contemporary purifying ritual that offers a quiet moment to unwind in everyday life created by Aoiro and Studio Corkhino. It is a pure collaboration of their unique specialities: an olfactory design for space and atmosphere and an exploration of object design with cork. The result is a serene ceremony set composed with natural essences, uniquely treated cork and other carefully sourced, earthy materials. ‘
Listening’ to the scent allows your senses to be infused and to experience it with your entire being. Based on a philosophy derived from Khodo - the Japanese ceremony of appreciating a subtle and exquisite fragrance - AOIRO has been exploring a different way of using scent as an olfactory experience in space.
Exploring the unique and raw, organic surfaces of burnt cork, each object offers a diffusion ground, on which the Hakudo Rain Botanical Essence can be dripped. Spread around the space or kept together to intensify the energy of the scent: the set brings a personal ritual into our private space as a sensory experience that stimulates and harmonises our presence, offering stillness and mindfulness.
Set Includes: 30ml Hakudo Rain Botanical Essence & 9 Cork Diffuser Cubes wrapped in raw linen cloth and presented in a Paulownia wooden box, tailor-made and individually assembled by the hands of a master craftsman from Ishikawa, Japan.
Hakudo Rain Botanical Essence is an olfactory ceremony set created by Aoiro and inspired by the atmosphere of a spirited Japanese island after rainfall. It enables us to experience the sensation of air being charged with the spirit of rain. Smooth earthiness and dark, powerful greens are highlighting the quality of humidity as a main profile. Combined with airy notes of leafy and resinous essences, the scent slowly draws a vivid scenery with three-dimensional depth and creates a captivating air that rejuvenates the mind and spirit.
