Play is not just fun, it’s healthy too. Continuing to play as an adult can free your mind and reduce mental and physical health issues.

To what extent do textiles activate adults to play? And what is the importance of playing for adults?

The concept of this project is simple: activate adults to start playing again. Not just because it’s fun, but also because scientific research shows that a playful mindset can reduce several health issues such as Alzheimer. But how can you get them out of their comfort zone? By creating different objects in simple shapes, I dare people to let themselves go and take part in an adventure. There is no right or wrong, just follow your intuition!

The objects lack a particular purpose or function, which challenges adults. However, their bright colours quickly catch your attention and the materials get you curious of how they feel. Seeing the different kind of materials and techniques, mixed with colours that have a positive working on our body and mind, you know there is only one thing left to do. TIME TO PLAY!
