The relational surface

Kevin Walker, Marcela Uribe Forés

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


In this chapter we look into the future of the domestic interior space as a hybrid field of vibrations between physical and digital surfaces. We propose that design should focus on the active relations between and within human-centred systems, where human presence in a space is best described not as an observer or user, but as a locus of experience. In the future of interiors as the creation of relations,
new encounters will arise between the material and the digital.
