through this project, i want to make people aware of the plurality of their senses of touch, of their importance in terms of full perception of the world, and to reconnect them with tactility on a daily basis through my designs,’ rouillon explains. ‘I took the decision to communicate my concept through everyday objects, without digital tools, in order to stress even more this urge to touch and experience the everyday world we live in, through multi-sensory experiences.’
Our senses are triggered less and less. The interactions that we entertain with everyday devices are lacking sensibility, tactility, sensory experiences.
