Uncovering the smell of the past Révélateur uncovers the smell of the past and adds a contextual layer of information.
Révélateur uncovers the smell of the past. Installed in the Witte Dame building, it brings out a piece of Eindhoven’s history: the smell of the 1930’s Philips light bulb industry as this building rose to house its main factory. Grease, metal, wood, sweat were some of the smells that could be experienced in the Witte Dame’s past function.
The project was developed by the product designer Mickaël Wiesengrün in collaboration with Sissel Tolaas.
