Multi Sensory Event

As part of Design Week in Dublin, last night we hosted a multi sensory design event which was based around our continuing work with sound and food design. We invited 150 to take part in the event and the place was full. Guests were welcomed in the door with a jelly and a beer. There was a choice of two jellies at the door, a mango and chilli and a bluberry prosecco, which was had with a Tiger beer.

Guests were then guided to the centre of the room there were 4 speaker boxes, each playing different piece of music, the music was designed to represent a flavour of jelly. Each speaker box was marked on the underside by a graphic.

After listening to the music guests were asked to pick their favourite, or the most appetising sound. They were then given one of four jellies. None of the flavours were mentioned as we wanted everyone to guess and use their senses, starting with their hearing.

Below we have posted the music from last night and the flavours of Jelly they represented. We would love to know peoples thoughts on the night, so please email us at or tweet at us @wearedesigngoat.
