The Principals, a studio focuses on industrial design, interactive environments and the influence of new technologies on traditional craftsmanship sent us their latest project: ‘Cosmic Quilt,’ a quilt suspended from on the ceiling, that interacts with users as they approach. Cosmic Quilt was created with the help of 20 students from the Art Institute of New York, a prototype combining technology, sensors, micro controllers and motors, with traditional craft in the form of quilt making.
“The project aims to answer the question ‘What if architecture responded to our presence?’ This project is a realization of our ultimate ambition, which is to design spaces and objects that expand upon our understanding of the built realm without abandoning its history. Soon, just as we can sense a space as calm, contemplative or frenetic … space itself will be able to sense our presence and react accordingly.”
