Anthropologist and Innovator
Brilliant design is not just about beauty it’s about creating a sanctuary that renews the spirit and quenches the soul. It’s about creating a supportive environment that allows you to be all of who you are, to be healthy, happy, peaceful and productive.
Known for her noise reversing designs through Esionizm Architecture (‘esion’ is itself a reverse of the word noise) Edith has over 22 years of professional design expertise in behavioural architecture. Focused on more than just aestehetic beauty Edith also seeks to create spaces that positively influence behaviour, by positively influencing the thougths and feelings of those that experieince her architecture. This holistic approach can help to reduce noise and stress levels which can in turn improve relationships as well as health, sleep patterns and lifestyle (Esion Time via esionBaby, esionPet, esionX, esionHome).
All Esion products are hand made by skilled craftsmen from France, Sweden, Italy. Not only does this approach create beautiful, bespoke creations that are unique to each individual but it supports disappearing craftsmanship that simply can’t be created by a machine.
Her latest venture in a life of adventures is Discovery Doors – design innovations that combine a performance tool with practical architecture and inspiring imagery to help busy parents recognize and encourage their child’s natural talent (and in the process tap into their own hidden talent so they too can find their own passion.)
Edith believes that we all have a special talent and our mission in life is to find that talent and use it. When we do we make our own unique contribution to the world which can not only make us happier, healthier and wealthier but make the world a better place in the process.
Having worked all over the world many times and witnessed the best and worst of humanity, Edith saw time and time again how important it was to nurture children and give them the best possible start and has now created a children’s foundation which will help ALL children, from all social and economic backgrounds and cultures to find their natural-born talents (www.thefishingrod.com).
Based on the old adage, “Give a man a fish and he will feed himself for a day but teach a man to fish and he will feed himself for a lifetime”, this important work recognizes we all have and should use our unique gifts. When we do we can feed ourselves for a lifetime. For too many, their gift or innate talent remains a mystery which perhaps explained why 85 percent of people hate their job. With a little effort and encouragement however it can be discovered in all of us and, ideally, as early as possible. When a child is supported to discover and nurture that ability from a young age they have the opportunity to be all they can be, feel pride in their place in the world and make a positive contribution.
In her up-coming- book, “Be Who You Are” Edith explains the methodology behind these bespoke innovations that can help foster your child’s innate talent. Famous American scholar and mythologist Joseph Campbell once said, “Follow your bliss. If you follow your bliss, you put yourself on a kind of track that has been there all the while, waiting for you, and the life that you ought to be living is the one you are living. Wherever you are—if you are following your bliss, you are enjoying that refreshment, that life within you, all the time.”
Discovery Doors combine educational architecture to help your child uncover their bliss and create beautiful, creative and colourful designs that tap into that potential and help it to flourish.
Practical approach allow you and your child to co-create a bedroom or playroom that is dedicated to discovering your child’s inner talent. Using an intelligent design philosophy exclusive to children’s indoor spaces Discovery Doors literally “opens the doors” to every child’s talents, personality and interests. Within each child’s personal living space, Edith designs multiple themed “doors” that lead to areas of child-friendly exploration of…gardening, architecture, teaching, finance, journalism, archeology, art or medicine—just to name a few.
Edith’s goal is simple: To provide parents with a practical yet innovative way to help their children get on the path to self-discovery so they can find and follow their bliss to a happier, healthier and more productive life.
