WHAT WE DID IN SHORT
  • Digital and interactive research
  • Concept
  • Interaction design
BRIEF

The National Museum of Cinema in Turin is not only the tallest museum in the world, but it’s also one of the most intriguing: designed by the imaginative Swiss/French architect François Confino, it is like a dream museum, as we wrote in our blog.
InvisibleStudio was asked to come up with a proposal for the new Cafeteria tables, which had to be as innovative and imaginative as the museum itself.

OUR SOLUTION

We imagined a long “social interactive table” where the digital images of the dishes sold in the cafeteria slowly flowed from one commensal to the other. Everyone could stop the dishes by touching them, blocking the flow for everyone else, and then release it or send it to someone else. The idea was to make people interact between themselves using the dishes, emphasising the consequences every single gesture has on the surrounding environment.

SUCCESS

Our idea anticipated many of nowadays installations  where people are brought together and digitally interact between themselves using physical gestures.
