ARC19: Dare to Feel: Use your Senses and Enter the World of Intimacy – Dare Design – Studio
How intimate relationships between people look like have been changed by modern technology, but is this a change we just have to accept, or that benefits us?
‘Dare to Feel’ is a series of products for the home environment which gives users increased possibilities to maintain relations in real life.
Toelichting door Dare Design – Studio – Intimacy is strongly based on touch and smell. ‘Dare to Feel’ is a series of products for the home environment which will create an intimate and safe to release emotions place by using these key senses.
The low seat sofa is a space to spend time together or to be only with your own emotions by splitting it into two armchairs. The upholstery material used for this object is velvet which allows the emotional and tactile experience. To give the warm and natural touch to the sofa, walnut wood was used for the finishing.
Based on the feedback from Millennials, the sense of smell is an essential element of intimacy as well as varying temperatures of light. In line with this, a glass, light-based object was created. The increasing temperature of light releases an aroma which can bring intimate memories back or create completely new ones.
Colors, materials, and shapes in both of designed objects create the environment which is not only a comfortable place for the individual or a couple but will give this feeling of safety to open up about emotions. Experiencing a sense of touch and smell was a base of the design process. The reason was to discover how it affects him/her.
