Concept / Waves is a wall hung object with an interactive wooden scale-structure based on the concept of the Dear disaster cabinet. The pattern is inspired by water and waves – calm or agitated like a stormy sea, static and moveable at the same time.
The moveable structure is meant to give an outlet through which the user can express his emotions and on which he can leave his own individual imprint. We designed the interactive structure inspired by the idea that creating images and playful patterns might facilitate the communication between people, no matter cultural background or language barriers. In a society where it might be hard to find the right place and time to express ones personal feelings, the structure provides an outlet for self-reflection with the help of abstract patterns and rhythmic interaction, similar to using a rosary to aid in prayer.
