Wonder. Data Driven Dynamics

Wonder is a responsive textile animated by data. It seeks to illustrate a world where digital information is no longer behind a screen.

We face a reality full of screens simulating what was once physical. Increasingly, we see objects disappearing to be substituted by apps. Meanwhile, what remains physical, is equipped by sensors digitalizing life.  I have found myself in the crossing point between tangible design and the possibilities of the digital world. Wonder contributes to a future where data means much more than information on screens or smart realities that suppress serendipity and surprise. The trainers created with Wonder change based on the person’s data produced while running.  It illustrates the possibilities of bringing the ever-growing data into everyday objects. Where it becomes a seamless and almost invisible motor to animate and enchant the elements in our lives.

    MA Innovation Design Engineering, 2014

  • I merge two very different and very similar worlds of creation, design and science. I know the possibilities of technology, I challenge its limitations and I combine them with a strong human design. I push boundaries in any direction to create the optimal and extreme user experience on every single project I do.
