    Sensory design recognizes that we understand and navigate the world with all five of our senses. Organized into nine thematic sections, The Sensesdemonstrates that by opening up to multiple sensory dimensions, designers reach a greater diversity of users. Maps that can be touched as well as seen facilitate mobility and knowledge for sighted, low-vision, and blind users. Audio devices translate sound into vibrations that can be felt on the skin. Tableware and kitchen tools use color and form to guide people living with dementia or vision loss. These innovations are beneficial to all users as sensory design enhances awareness of the body and creates new emotional terrain through its stimulation of our visceral responses. — Cooper Hewitt

    The Senses: Design Beyond Vision invites visitors to encounter design with all their senses through several interactive installations. The Senses is curated by Ellen Lupton & Andrea Lipps and currently on show at the Cooper Hewitt Smithsonian Design Museum, exhibition design by Studio Joseph.

    The accompanying book by Andrea Lipps & Ellen Lupton is a manifesto celebrating the sensory richness of design. A must-read and powerful reminder to anyone who thinks design is primarily a visual pursuit. Designed by David Genco and Ellen Lupton. Co-published by Princeton Architectural Press and Cooper Hewitt.
