SPECTACULAR SENSORY EXPLORATION ✨every item in this collection is selected and/or created with considerations of:
- Sight: light, color, opacity, texture, reflection
- Touch: smooth, silky, metallic, sandy, squishy
- Smell: fresh dried lavender flowers, rose petals, bergamot-infused dough, rich wood
- Sound: wood, steel, BPA-free plastic, steel, heavyweight cardboard and sand invite subtle auditory experiences

Intelligent materials are those that…
amuse, provoke, stimulate, challenge, charm, engage, seduce, connect, evoke emotion…do not impose a direction but pose questions and elicit hypotheses and the desire to experiment…invite questions, curiosity, and experimentation… involve a balance of simplicity and complexity…are evocative and facilitate discovery, exploration, and the creation of stories, metaphors and games…lead to a sense of wonder and excitement so that users are motivated to come back to them.
