Pilot

With our pilot research we were able to apply the designs in a real life context. Creating the possibility to learn from implementing them and to discover their impact. The main question we want to answer in our Bio Mirror project is:

How can materials and interior product contribute to mental well-being?

Curious about the results of our pilot research? You can find the pdf here. 

A research into

stress reducing materials

to create tangible surfaces for daily life

The location based research gave us insights from a design perspective in how applying the different installation in an office environment worked. Next to that we studied the impact of the installations on the people working there.

We installed Dangling Mirror, Surface of sound an POP coins. The two pilot locations were HNK Rotterdam and Being.

In collaboration with the TUD we were able to develop the deep breathing tool in VR. The aim of the tool is to help people relax and reduce stress by using their breath as a means.

The VR study contained two phases of testing.

In the first phase we dove into the design of the tool and in the second phase we tested the impact.
