Zeitraum was the very first realised project of my design course. In that exciting time full of new experiences and shifting changes, the aim was to give visibility to the space we tend to overlook: the space-in-between. ZeitRaum is a concept for an interactive rocking chair object that wants to contribute to an active, undisturbed finding of balance by creating space for oneself and consciously doing-nothing. It runs on a mechanism consisting of two intersecting circle segments that move in opposite directions. If you lean back and are able to find your personal center of gravity, the object forms into a shielded capsule.
MA, did you know?
In Japan, there is a word which describes balance as "the void between two things":
間 (MA) assumes that this void, an in-between space , is full of possibilities and essential for the whole to take shape.
