Title of Work

Interruptive Objects for Transitional Spaces


This is a project about process and poetry.

Within our homes there are little-loved, mundane spaces - transitional spaces that we pass through many times a day but give little thought too - our hallways, vestibules and stairways. We miss the hidden beauty and poetry that lurks in these places. The objects of this project attempt to bring that back to the surface by encouraging users to pause.

This is also a project about the process of designing - in a natural and intuitive way. About trusting your gut, using both your conscious and unconscious minds and doing what feels right.

But in the end it’s simply a rug, a mirror and a light.
