‘Creatures with creations and their segregation of joy’ is the title of a design research on how to embed movement related to expression and emotional release in a daily life. Due to multi functionality of computers and their expansion most people spend their working hours while siting behind a computer.
By making an office chair based on the dynamics of the body and linking these body movements to the control of the interface, work can become dynamic and expressive again. An attempt on integrating joy.
The prototyping of the chair was done in collaboration with Sami Sabik.

Embracing the Touch is a project about designer’s relation with the works and designer’s presence in them.
Design is a matter, tangible and desirable, that carries meaning in itself, in its body. It’s what you understand and experience through physicality. It’s like a garment that you can try on, see how it looks on you. The same way you project yourself through someone else.
So behind the matter stands a designer. Do we think how much intimacy, personality he or she leaves in the design? Would it change our perception meeting the author; facing the fact that a designer is a physical body, made from flesh and blood, having certain physiology, certain volume, smell, breath? Does it create intimate relation with the user? And does this intimacy attract or repel?
