WORKSHOPS AND EVENTS
During the Ever After Workshop we propose to consider scenarios of adaptation, inventing new life style spaces for so-called habitable furniture that helps filter, or adjust, or permit different types of mobility. There are various "spaces" in our daily lives that need to be amended with flexible design interventions for socialization. From the scale of "territory", "distance", or "interval" between people and objects, a good design can guarantee calmness or comfort. The workshop asks us how to simplify life through outdoor furniture for public areas.
