Inspired by her younger sister’s carefree doodling, Lisha Li wanted to bring back little moments of illumination in our daily lives. Therefore she designed “Interface”, a tray coming in a variation of colors and appealing patterns which can be used in a café like setting to serve drinks, but also to write or draw on it. Because Desktop linoleum can be cleaned easily, people can use a crayon to share little stories with each other or scribble what they have on their mind. Thanks to this tray and the materials she used, Lisha hopes to provide a warmer experience for people, making them pay more attention to their surroundings and for a moment take a step out of the virtual world.
We believe the designer’s role is about looking beyond the surface – to make responsible decisions and to understand the ethical implications of one’s choices.
In partnership with Forbo, we have investigated the ethical implications of design through material, form and function. We have designed artifacts that embody various kinds of gatherings; the gathering of materials and the gathering of people – all about stimulating interaction through design.
Let’s talk, share and play!
