Pium Brooklyn (Top) and Pium Chelsea (Bottom)

Pium is your personal assistant for home fragrance. Pium is beautifully designed to upscale your space. Natural essential oil helps you get more positive mood and mind. Pium is smart to automate scent control throughout a day.

 Ready-to-use Scent Capsule

Scent capsules are the heart of Pium. It's easy, clean, and beautiful. The sealed capsule design keeps essential oil from oxidation, so the last drop will be as fresh as the first one. Oil information is electrically coded inside the capsule, and automatically recognized after plugged in.

 Our essential oil collections are 100% organic natural.

Easy Setup 1-2-3

Don't know much about home fragrance? Busy to manage scented candles at home? Tired of one fragrance for last few months? Here's Pium. Simply put your favorite capsule, connect your Pium to our mobile app, and that's it! It will infuse your space with various scents automatically scheduled.

Personalize Home Fragrance

Pium understands you and your daily life. In our app, we will ask few questions to build personal profile at first, and recommend scents that you will love. With personal data from connected devices such as your mobile phone or Amazon Echo, Pium lets you enjoy natural scents perfectly aligned with your moments.

Smart Home Fragrance

Pium is smart and automated. Pium knows what you need and sets up diffusing schedule. Pium reduces diffusing intensity when you are away, and recovers the previous intensity when you get back. If Pium is connected to a calendar app, it diffuses scents for the events automatically. Pium support smart voice interface with Amazon Echo. You can ask questions, add scents to your favorite list, or diffuse scent in a natural way.

We are further extending toward other smart home interfaces and personal healthcare platforms. With current smart home products, Pium is seamlessly blended and create synergy. Morning and night. Focus and Relax. Pium builds perfect atmospheres that can't be done solely by lighting or music. .

Real-time Scent Management

Pium mobile app provides a better way to manage devices and control scents remotely. The overview screen displays the current scent information and locations where the device is at. Device management screen shows all registered Pium devices with current working status. The mobile app also recommends scents based on recent activities and search history.

First Prototype

The first prototype of Pium proves the connected scent concept by controlling various scents remotely with connected devices. We developed a user interface to pick scents by colors, and found a strong correlation between emotion and color and scent.

About Us

homepage  |  facebook

Our vision is to connect scent to everyday life. When Jaeyeon was studying human computer interaction in his Ph.D program at Cornell, he recognized the power of scent information which is strongly connected to memory, and shared the idea with Sungjae when both worked at FuturePlay, one of the biggest VC in Asia. With helps of perfume designers, aromatherapists, product designers, interior designers, engineers, SW developers, we developed Pium, a beautifully designed home fragrance with intelligence.

Now, you can join and build community together!

 

Risks and challenges

Manufacturing
Validation and certification process for manufacturing is totally different story than R&D. There is always a chance that we would get shortage of material or part supply. We fully understand upcoming risks and closely work with manufacturing engineers and designers at CrucialTec, which is a company supplying finger print sensor to Blackberry and Samsung.

Data Integration
We have made progress step by step to approach current service providers such as Aamazon Echo, Samsung S Health or Apple Healthkit, and integrate other services to Pium. However, they can always change their service terms any time. We understand this, and design system architecture to minimize the unexpected impact later.

We are fully aware of unexpected things, and promise to move forward. We will keep update every single step on the process.
