Arigami Multisensory Research.png

ARIGAMI researches experiential environments to unfold where and how multisensory stimuli can enhance people’s lives.

Our research network provides context to our daily interactions, memory and perception. Our niche area of experimentation allows us to reduce the risk of design decisions (made based on instinct alone) with validated science and empirical data. This empowers brands and organizations with the actual context of experiential data, optimizing people-centered outputs such as reducing stress, promoting well being, and other positive mood modulations using a specific range of multisensory triggers. Our holistic approach elevates our understanding of spaces, interactions, perceptual pleasure and provides valuable insights that can easily feed into either the conceptual or pre-manufacturing design process.


  • Cross-Modal Research: exploring the relationship between two or more senses at any given moment.

  • Identify the multisensory stimuli patterns that lead to reducing stress and promoting well-being.

  • Provide additional quantitative engagement context, beyond the market’s two dimensional data metrics.

  • Understand the sensory differences and transfer-ability into other environments including retail, hospitality, auto, healthcare, education and many more.




At Arigami we explorE the senses 
using various branches of neuroscience, Physics, biology, chemistry and psychology.


Our sensory system consists of sensory receptors, neural pathways, and parts of the brain involved in sensory perception. Commonly recognized sensory systems are those for vision, hearing, somatic sensation (touch), taste and olfaction (smell).

At Arigami we look into which combinations of stimuli are most efficient and measure both conscious and subconscious aspects of engagement.

Our research suggests which combinations of atmospheric stimuli can improve cognition, refine sleep, redefine wellness and transform stress.



  • In addition to sight, smell, taste, touch, and hearing, humans also have the sense of balance, pressure, temperature, pain, and motion.

  • Previous studies show that over 75% of emotions are triggered by smell which is linked to pleasure, well-being, emotion and memory

  • 85-95% of daily decisions occur on the subconscious level.






The truth is, when you’re a scientist one of the best parts of the job is getting to work with other scientists. It’s sharing your ideas with other people and together creating the best science that you can.

At Arigami we bring together global leading experts from various fields of science and offer them a methodical and practical multisensory framework. Using this interdisciplinary lens we can understand how people perceive their environments and function in response; biologically, chemically, psychologicaly and cognitively.



  • EEG

  • Heart Rate

  • GSR

  • Temperature

  • Respiratory Rate

  • Pupil Dialation

  • fMRI

  • Eye Tracking


we have the ideal expertise for understanding how people’s senses interact and engage within any specific environment.


In order to further advance our understanding and use case for this level of research we had to think differently. Interdisciplinary research is the source of some of the greatest breakthroughs of all time. We recognized early on that while many independent researchers or labs are pursuing sensory studies, most of them are isolated from one another, and typically only focus on one sensory modality.

Arigami brings together a network of established researchers who are moving strongly and clearly in favor of streamlining experiments. Our scientific team are helpful in tackling complex and important problems. Working together allows us to produce better work, empowering all those involved to take on more ambitious projects, bring complementary knowledge and apply diverse research methods.
