Enter Aliveness: A Reinvented Door

“In an increasingly fluid and complex world, new relations with nature need to be developed in architecture,” says Adams Ponnis. He researched how we can bring the solid structures of our homes to life. Having a keen interest in mobility, he took the doors as a starting point – the perfect entry for a touch of nature. The outcome is a completely reinvented entrance made from a soft skeleton with a tactile skin. Using air pressure, it opens and closes as if by magic, evoking a sense of aliveness and radically changing the user experience. As boundaries between doors, walls and windows disappear, homes become breathing organisms, strengthening the connection between humans and buildings.
