For which situations in life do we need interactive products? Furniture that makes contact with the user, stimulates communication and addresses the senses, being, at the same time, easy and intuitive in its use?

In close cooperation with skilled craftsmen and partners from industry, nine student teams developed and realized their ideas of “Interactive objects”.
