The workshop project is called Bouquet and is "...a synesthetic olfactory device which permits the user to perceive color through fragrances. The device detects the color it presented and delivers a corresponding mix of fragrances through the nozzle. Bouquet acts as an extension of the user’s olfactory senses in order to deliver a different sort of augmented reality."
The workshop is led by Niklas Roy (Twitter) with his students in their third year of Bachelor Media & Interaction Design at École cantonale d'art de Lausanne (ÉCAL). ÉCAL is a university of art and design based in Renens, which is near Lausanne, Switzerland.
Here is a short video that describes this workshop project:
