ART INTEGRATION, AZ ALMA
Competition design in collaboration with Axelle Vertommen.
In the clinical environment of a youth psychiatry centre, it is not always easy to flourish as a young person. With this frivolous design, we want to make things a bit more light-hearted. This cheerful cube can be used for group discussions or for finding individual peace. The design inside acts as a soft cocoon: a raised floor with a cut-out circle covered by carpet and a light-permeable curtain that can close or open the cube. The outside serves as a piece of furniture with benches, shelves, tables and chalkboards, and is painted with various graphic patterns in soft colours. With cheerfulness, experience and interaction, this cube makes the environment more playful and active.
