Do you have favorite music that can help you unwind after a long day? Is there a odor that transports you back to your youth? Or does a gentle help you feel calmer as you sit down to see?
Today, we’re starting”A Space for Being,” our exhibit at the design seminar Salone del Mobile Milano, that investigates this connection and endeavors to make the effect of layout more visible.
The display, built with Reddymade Architecture, Muuto Design and the International Arts + Mind Lab is made up. There is more than meets the eye in the design experience.
Each space comes with a different look, aroma, feel and sound, complete with distinctive textures, colors and layout components. As attendees wander through the distances, they will put on a specially-made wristband that measures biological responses such as heart activity, breathing rate, skin temperature, skin conductivity and motion. At the conclusion, before every guest’s data is deleted, they will see a visual representation of their answer to each room and receive a customized readout that suggests which distance made them feel “at ease”
