Designing from a Material. The emotional home

This workshop is based on the exploration of advanced materials to create a new product, new spaces and new interactions in the housing environment of the year 2030. It aims to express everything from emotions and sensations to considering socio-cultural and economic aspects. The five senses are explored and applied to the creation of a product to generate a scenario of use where functionality is valued. Participants work in groups.
