Materiality and Detail

Final design concept

After not being very satisfied with my first three designs, I considered the essence of any human relationship and how one can build on that. I then reflected upon objects which can connect and grow, such as puzzle pieces.

In this design I also considered the aspect of sleeping and waking, and the struggles of falling asleep. The climb up to that state, before falling into a deep sleep. That’s why I wanted to have these puzzle like pieces layered up that need to be climbed to reach the mattress.
