about

Patrick Palcic (*1984, Stuttgart) is a Croatian-Slovenian-German product designer based in Berlin. He received his B.A. in Product and Process Design and M.A. in Design from the University of Arts Berlin. His work focuses on the five senses, particularly smell. The scope of his projects range from small batches of odor molecules to producing large-scale immersive installations. The primary goal of his work is to reflect the broad spectrum of the nose and our sense of smell in a synesthetic manner.
