iF DESIGN TALENT AWARD_02 2019

As we are welcoming more digital technologies into our home environment, the question arises if interactions with products through touchscreen interfaces are always desirable. Besides the loss of tactile qualities, touchscreen interactions demand our focused attention. In order to prevent technology from overburdening us, we have to move it to the background of our attention. Orbit is a tangible music streamer that illustrates how we can use physical interactions to make technology less obtrusive. Comprising of two parts and a multitude of sensors, the user controls their music through a series of physical movements and pre-set positions.

It means a lot to be selected as one of the winners of the iF Talent Award. This recognition is a great motivation for upcoming design projects. A big thank you to everyone who supported me.
