Des panneaux muraux réagissant à la chaleur

An American design studio has developed a system of wall panels, the surface reacts with body heat. Another way of understanding the interaction between the user and the environment.

design agency based in Jackson - Mississippi, Visual Reference Studio is led by Nuno Gonçalves Ferreira and Erin Hayne. This designer duo pays particular attention to the sensory experiences of users and interactions and dialogues that can engage with surrounding objects. Their "Touch Wall Panels" project provides a perfect illustration.

"Touch Wall Panels" is a modular panel system with wall mounting. Made of foam and wood, these elements are in the form of 60 squares with their sides on the curved and slightly concave surface. This surface 3 dimensions is precisely coated with a heat-sensitive layer that reacts and changes color when exposed to body heat or that of a light source. A simple touch of the hand or body, a hot lamp that we approach and traces of contrasting hues are drawn on the wall, like a spectrum of the user, a trace of his presence that will gradually fade away after he left. The environment reacts and recomposes, the user prints its ephemeral history.
