"This project is a collection of soft textile interfaces, which behaves as an organic display for seating that reacts to touch.

Jury's judgement
We enjoyed the use of the slices, which transform themselves in a material that originally has much more rigid uses and aspects which are finally proposed. There exists an apparent simplicity to the project followed with a technical knowledge of the use of the material which grants it malleability in order to adapt to different shapes and territories, conforming itself into an organic and manageable product which transforms according to its own use.
Even though, in reality, it could be included in the furniture segment, the project blends in a successful manner a resolved binomial functionality and aesthetic, promoting a “slow/soft technology” and incites new spaces conformed by the symbiotic skin which accomplished its role of object/space/material."

exhibition: SymbiosisW

Proposal:

SymbiosisW is a biologically inspired textile representation of the distribution of living organisms.
Human sensation is more dependent on the "here and now": we notice the sudden changes, however we can not detect gradual change.
Our robot is a soft organic biomimetic object that senses human impact immediately and manifests those changes visually. Lichen, a symbiotic union of fungi and alga, can be seen as a good indicator of air quality because its primary food source is found in air. As the air gets polluted the survival rate of lichen species suddenly drops. Instead, new species come to the front: the ones that adapt to civilization.
Therefore, by literally touching the lichened soft surface of the patterned robot we can immediately realize the mutation.
