Sensory Balance

Long Border
Sensory Balance is a border that’s been inspired by autistic friends and family of the designers.

Carlson and Stevens have used repetition, structure and a multi-sensory approach in their border to bring balance to the senses. This design was based on information from The National Autistic Society, which states that over or under stimulated senses causes anxiety in those with autism.

The planting in the border invites you to stimulate multiple senses through touch, taste, listen, see and smell – bringing balance and offsetting the busy show.
