The Mood Maker


The first of its kind, Hieko is an all-in-one solution for taking you from stress to serenity! Using a clever combination of tech, it taps into your visual, auditory and olfactory senses to lighten your mood.

First and foremost, it’s pretty… and pretty things make you feel good. Its shape is that of an elegant flower vase and features intricate details on the exterior that mimic the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery with gold called Kintsugi. Furthermore, a holographic system displays a variety of holographic arrangements to match the aroma you select.

Second, the aromatic feature brings soothing, natural scents into your living space. Choose from a number of interchangeable aroma cartridges that each contain multiple scents. Then, use the gestural control interface of the vase (or just use your smartphone app) to cycle through and choose your desired aroma of the moment.

Lastly, a mood enhancer wouldn’t be complete without music! A built in Bluetooth speaker connects you to your favorite playlists and songs to wake you up, brighten your day, or help you wind down!
