From Passive to Active


As a first step a Yalp Sona was installed, an interactive dance and sound arch. The second visible project was the outcome of a one week intensive workshop, set up by ProFit, in cooperation with the municipality of Delft and the faculty Industrial Design of Delft University of Technology. The theme was: create an idea for outdoor furniture, which supports interaction between elderly and children. The entry called From Passive to Active by Omar Ebadi, a young graduate student, was selected as the winning design and has been realized and placed in the FieldLab. It is a simple furniture line, mainly constructed out of scaffold wood. The design directs the gathering of people towards an object, from a passive presence to an active participation.
