Each space comes with a different look, feel, scent and sound, complete with unique textures, colors and layout elements. As attendees walk through the distances, they’ll wear a specially-made wristband that measures reactions such as breathing rate, heart activity, skin temperature, skin conductivity and movement. In the end, before every guest’s data is deleted, they will see a visual representation of their response to each room and get a customized readout that suggests which space left them feel “at ease.”
The exhibit, constructed in conjunction with the International Arts + Mind Lab, Reddymade Architecture and Muuto Design at John Hopkins University, is made up of 3 spaces supplied to seem like rooms in a home. There is more than meets the eye in the design experience.
Today, we’re opening”A Space for Being,” our exhibition at the plan seminar Salone del Mobile Milano, which investigates this link and endeavors to make the impact of layout more visible.
