Inti-Gym, short for 'Intimacy Gymnasium', is a physical and environmental platform that enables strangers to foster deep emotional connections with the self and others. The design is scientifically backed, using a series of tried and tested intimacy enablers and environmental theories surrounding conviviality, promoting a habitual practice of intimacy training.
