Entitled A Space to think, her project is a simple, lightweight wooden day-bed inspired by Japanese aesthetics. The piece incorporates adjustable textile screens conceived as miniature partitions, allowing the user to create their own private space – somewhere to relax and let the mind roam free.

I’m very interested in nomad textiles. In some nomadic homes, textile panels serve as partitions and sound insulation, but they function as symbolic ‘separators’, too. I wanted to work on the feeling of security, so essential for relaxation. And so I created a day bed in wood, fitted with textile panels that can be positioned over it. The panels define a psychologically private space. Depending on how they are positioned, they can indicate to others whether the user is available or not. This is a space for day-dreaming and letting your mind wander.
An ever-greater sense of responsibility. Designers should always see themselves as educators, whether they work for one individual or a large enterprise. We must strive to make the objects that surround us both aesthetic, and sustainable.
Slow, minimal, safe.
