PRODUCT DESIGN

Dynamic Small Spaces

The main intent of this project in collaboration with IKEA was to create opportunities for adults to exercise while performing daily activities. By incorporating body motion, which is not usually a feature of daily life furnishings within a limited space to stimulate body structures and keep them healthy for a longer period of time.

After analyzing interviews with professional contemporary dancers, 5 basic mock-ups have been developed in order to test the movement with possible stakeholders. Feedback from participants in combination with design decisions lead to the selection of the rotating lamp as the final product for this project.

I chose 5 basic "undeveloped" ideas in order to create simple mockups and test the most important aspect of this project - movement. The intention was to stimulate forgotten body parts, involve them in different directions and create more space inside body structures during the day.
