Design and build an interactive installation that creates a meaningful moment in daily life, taking the increase of technology into account.
Desk workers that have to work in a static and noisy environment, like a plan office, can get stuck in their work and routine. Emails, text messages and social media are part of our hyper-connected world. But, sometimes you just need to take a break and disconnect yourself for a while.
A relaxing cocoon where people can take a break for a few minutes. The chair inside will produce a soft rocking motion and ambient music/sounds will play.Why I think this is a cool project?
- it provokes a change/shift of perspective (in a comfortable way), enabling reflection.
- it makes people’s lives a bit more pleasant in the current society full of information/technology.
the project tuned in on people’s behaviour, mood and needs, with the use of qualitative research.
- my research was the fundament for further development of the chair into a functional prototype by my team.
