A series of products invite people to sleep and wake up
It is common sense that sleeping directly influences a person’s physical and mental health. As an absolute-personal period, sleeping also brings about kind of social impact creating separation of a person and his/her social context. Following that metaphor, the process of falling asleep and waking up actually plays a role of "Transitional Zone" mentioned by Kenya Hara, which connects the transition from individual immersion to social collection.
Bifrost is a wake-sleep aids suit, which consists of a gradient light, a radio speaker and an aromatic diffuser. Functions are separated into single products instead of integration for better simplicity and flexibility aligned with their clean forms. Providing multi-sensorial experience with light, sound and odour, it aims to smooth the gradient from dormancy (individual immersion) to soberness (social collection). And that lies the experience vision: gently invite people to sleep and wake up.
