SHAPE, RESHAPE & TOUCH

Shape, Reshape & Touch began as a biological furniture design concept with the aim towards a more eco-friendlier material & a beeline interaction between furniture and participant. The focus does not remain on the amenity a chair can or should provide, but shifts towards a more conscious relation between the two through engagement. Within the concept, this engagement is enforced through shaping, reshaping and touching. However, the research proceeds by also questioning the biopolymer, gelatine, which the furnitures are made out of. Is it truly a better alternative to work with? And in what measures is it biodegradable? To what extend does it change our behaviour towards furniture design?
