Designing conversations with objects of the interior
I believe design exists to make the every day more enjoyable, to bring in little surprises to its spectator, and to leave a subtle smile on its user. This project is about applying anthropomorphic gesture to the everyday object. By giving the inanimate object a personality, it creates a sense of connection to its user. Humans tend to see their reflection on their surroundings. Through the journey of this project, I came to question why anthropomorphic gesture? Which develops further to an exploration to challenge the limits of our perception. How much can I reduce the human form until it stops being recognisable?
Through this project, I am exploring the potential of a single line to represent the human body. I have used only the most essential elements which are the circularity of the head and the singular line of the body. My design language sits in the translation of 2D and 3D Realms.
This project captures my translatory thinking of transforming the drawings that I do into a product that opens out a particular discourse. The outcome is a collection of interior objects; I am using the objects to explore my design language. The project aims to reveal this exploration through objects that feed and invite interaction and conversation. This project offers a new set of objects of romance and discourse. The form and line combined with the imposed character will demand interaction, just like a person would. Just like a very quiet person, these objects in their minimalism instigated conversations: what is the limit of your imagination? How can one use the objects to bring in the poetry in their space? The object presents itself on its very minimal as to be as subtle and leave the spectator to create the romance by their own means of using the object.
