For the opening of the new V&A Furniture gallery at the end of 2012 AllofUs were commissioned to create two large interactive material display tables that celebrate the unique qualities of the different furniture materials found throughout the gallery.
Each of the materials had been designed individually making them a joy to look at and touch. These crafted materials when touched activate the responsive interface on the tables, which then presents the user with information about the materials origins and usage.
My role within the team was to design an elegant interface that complimented the unique, tactile nature of the table. We wanted to make the the mix of digital and tactile work together in a seamless enjoyable way and that didn't serve as a distraction.
