In today's world, remote communication has become a necessity for many of us. We rely on screens to communicate with each other and are often confined to our own spaces. The Lightbound was one of its kind; the innovative communication device was first crafted in 2015 and surpassed the concept of emotional communication via screens. For this, human touch and heartbeat were measured and transformed into the ambient light of the recipient, filling the room with one's presence and allowing individuals to stay connected. Emilia Taprest, a renowned designer and filmmaker, came to us with the question of how to realize her unique idea technically. Together, we found an approach for the lamp and wearable heartbeat sensor that was easy to implement yet still able to transfer the intricacies of human touch through the internet to the other side of the planet with minimal latency and long battery life.

In collaboration with a leading Escape Room company, we designed several unique, interactively controllable Escape Rooms. These designs grant the Game Master complete authority over all aspects of each game, including the ability to monitor ongoing progress across multiple rooms. They were crafted to merge elements of interactive play, engagement, and connection in an entertaining and bonding experience, enhancing the diversity and depth of challenges for participants.
Drawing inspiration from Sven Windszus's award-winning 'Lebensraum' project, we embarked on a journey to fuse physical sensations with digital experiences.
