AOIRO is a studio for olfactory design, founded by the Japanese - Austrian duo Shizuko Yoshikuni and Manuel Kuschnig. AOIRO's expertise lies in the olfactory interpretation of concepts that are transformed into individually created signature fragrances and olfactory identities, both for products and for space design in space.
AOIRO is the Japanese word for “the color of blue” (ao = blue, iro = color). The blue seen in the clear sky is the light gradient in the air, and it resonates with the approach of AOIRO to create air more communicative. AOIRO understands atmospheres as emotional qualities of space and a possibility to tailor unique encounters.
