A Domain of the Senses

In need of a moment to separate yourself from the hectic life outside? Curl up in your own cocoon chair and breathe in, breathe out – just follow the restful rhythm of the soft and warm textile that envelops you. “It seems that incorporating emotional and sensual experiences into the products and environments is crucial for calming down,” says Desiree van der Gracht. Integrated in a movable room divider, her breathing textile module reveals its second sensory aspect: by stroking the tactile surface it lights up in various shades. Just sit, feel, see and wonder. It will take your mind off things.
