Muse / Conceptual product design


MUSE provides a way to disconnect from our screens and constant media bombardment by prompting the user to reconnect with themselves, both in mind and body. MUSE promotes the movement of the magnetic balls to change the shape of the ferro fluid inside, providing a focus of movement and meditation. The unpredictable nature of the ferro fluid ensures MUSE provides continuous cognitive stimulation. The stand accessory allows MUSE to be placed on any flat surface allowing MUSE to be in easy reach. When static, the ferro fluid will hold a random abstract shape which can be used as artistic inspiration and to develop creative thinking.
