Can a space adapt to your stress levels? Introducing RESET at iSalone del Mobile

UNStudio and SCAPE have joined forces with a multidisciplinary team of experts for the exhibition ‘Work 3.0 – A Joyful Sense at Work’, which will take place at the iSalone del Mobile in Milan from 4th to 9th April 2017.

For their contribution to the exhibition, a team consisting of UNStudio, SCAPE, Dr. Teresa de Sanctis (PhD Neuroscientist/experience design and optimisation), Jurjen Söhne (Ambient Intelligence technology integration) and Diederik Veelo (Technologist/Interaction design) have developed a fully immersive, modular structure that features scientifically proven stress reduction methods in a playful and interactive way.

RESET (Responsive Emotional Transformation)
The RESET pod is designed to empower people to deal with stress more effectively. In the ‘Joyful Sense at Work’ exhibition its purpose within the workplace will be demonstrated and the benefits for office workers will be investigated and presented.
