Heka is a sensory design studio with a focus on sustainability & wellbeing. Founded by designer Lauren Davies and based in London, studio projects include furniture, objects, prints, sensory spaces & experiences and workshops.
Design is used as a means of storytelling, driven by the consistent thread of activating the soul; whether that be the soul of an individual, a collective or unlocking true meaning, depth and direction in the consultancy projects I work on.
Through activating the soul, I believe it is possible to imagine more exciting, sustainable futures and nurture a more profound sense of wellbeing.
I am an ideas person with a wealth of knowledge about and a passion for sustainable innovation, wellbeing and sensory design.
My curious mind seeks to connect the dots between culture and human behaviour and how this might impact the future of branding, colour, consumption, design, flavour, fragrance, ingredients, materials and making. I use my practice to drive innovation, as we shift to more regenerative design paradigms.
Industries I have worked as a consultant within include: Health & Wellbeing / Beauty & Fragrance / Food & Beverage / Tech / Travel & Hospitality / Fashion & Textiles but my thinking and expertise can be applied to most industries and projects with a sensory element.
- If you are a brand looking to explore your storytelling potential through a compelling new sensory product or experience, please get in touch about collaborating
- Are you running a brand innovation workshop? Invite me in to help you brainstorm around a table with other people. I believe that collaboration breeds the strongest, most disruptive ideas and I am in my element, sharing insights, solving problems and inventing the ideas of the future with others
- Whether you are looking for input on a new product, service or experience, or one to exist as part of an established brand or range, I can help you. If you only have the seed of an idea, or a more established idea that needs new energy and constructive input, I can help
- Perhaps you are trying to re-brand an existing brand or product to future-proof its place in the market? Customers are increasingly driven by an overall brand experience, not just product features. I can help you elevate your messaging by crafting a multi-sensory brand strategy that will give you a competitive edge
Maybe there is something that you feel my skills could be applied to that isn’t listed above. I am always open to new projects and collaborations so contact me via email or give me a call to have a chat about working together.
