Abstract

We present a novel concept of an all-in-1 system to recover well-being at home. The concept is based upon a playful and configurable combination of aromatherapy, light therapy, chromo therapy and music therapy to allow a “do-it-yourself” approach. These classical therapies are today usually sold separately in drugstores and we intend to integrate them into a single device which becomes a well-being centre. We introduce the concept of atmosphere and ambiance capsules that can be selected is the same manner as is done with a coffee machine. From the design point of view, the “CALM” system is built as a stone in reference to the Scandinavian design style. Several commercial packs are derived that will allow the user to select a panel of predefined atmospheres and even to build his own ones.
