Soma at IKEA:s new fresh living lab at Space 10 in Copenhagen

The Soma project is exhibited at IKEA:s new Fresh Living Lab in Copenhagen.

"As part of the Fresh Living Lab, we have explored the theme of body awareness together with IKEA’s Home Lab, Mobile Life Centre Stockholm, Boris Design Studio, and – last but not least – twelve designers from around the world who joined us for a three-day Body Awareness Makerthon at Space10.

We wanted to explore how we could design with a somaesthetic approach to support meditative bodily introspection. We use light and heat as modalities to subtly guide participants to turn their gaze inward to their own bodies. People who try our prototypes report feelings of relaxation, softer movements, and an increased awareness of their own breathing."
