Forget couples counseling to tell you you're drifting apart from your lover. A UK designer has come up with a concept that’s illuminatingrelationships from their living rooms.
This sofa is embedded with patterned lights which react to seating arrangements. As a couplesit apart on the sofa, they are surprised when a cold blue patternbegins to grow around them signifying their distance apart from eachother. With the pattern changing in relation to weight and proximity,as they move towards each other warm pink petals begin to formrepresenting their closeness.
Using light emitting(Electroluminescent) technology in conjunction with trigger sensitivematerials, the pattern is displayed in relation to where a person issitting. The petals will randomly illuminate around your body anddisappear when you move to another spot, meaning an ever evolving andchanging pattern display occurs. With the thoughtful and playfuldevelopment of the pattern, the wonderment of where the pattern willlead adds to the experience of using the sofa.
