HeadSpace symposium hosted by Parsons, MoMA, IFF and Coty.

* Parsons The New School for Design and The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), in partnership with International Flavors & Fragrances Inc. (IFF), Coty Inc. and Seed Media Group, presented Headspace: A Symposium on Scent as Design on March 26, at the Tishman Auditorium at The New School in New York City. The event brought together leading designers, scholars, scientists, artists, and perfumers to explore this new territory for design. It also marked the establishment of a new MFA in transdisciplinary design at Parsons.

In addition to panel discussions, Headspace included a select group of "accidental perfumers" who partnered with IFF perfumers to create a series of unique applications for scent in everyday life, beyond fragrance. Chandler Burr, perfume critic at The New York Times, moderated individual dialogues with the accidental perfumers on their scent design as well as on their creative process.

Also showcased was the work of students who collaborated with IFF perfumers to create a sensory experience, an interdisciplinary project called "Critical Experiments in the Smell of Space and Time."
